A fine Chinese export porcelain covered jug hand-painted in Famille Rose enamels with lotus petal-shaped panels around the lower body with contrasting pastel shades of cellwork below a richly decorated and detailed collar of scrolling peonies, the same motifs repeated on the cover.  The Famille Rose palette was a relatively new creation at this time and we can see here how quickly and expertly the Yongzheng painters mastered these new rich colors.  Measuring 4 1/4″ tall with restoration to the cover and small areas of re-touch to the cellwork panels, otherwise, a jewel of a piece. Circa 1735.
