A very fine quality pair of Kangxi covered jars with reeded bodies and hand-painted in underglaze blue with figural roundels and bordered around the shoulder and base with decorative bands – one with floral bands of peony and chrysanthemum, the other with cranes amongst clouds and ‘antique’ objects. Both topped with well-carved wood openwork covers and both in excellent condition. Kangxi period, late 17th century. Lovely form and lovely condition.
