19th Century Chinese Famille Verte Ginger Jar
A wonderful 19th Century Chinese ovoid ginger jar and cover painted with officials and their horses, peasants buildings, blossoming prunus and rocks. The circular bands are in under glazed blue. The cover has a charming garden scene with a noble attended by a servant and additional under glazed blue circles. The colours in this antique Chinese ginger jar are particularly striking, the iron red, greens, orange and gold contrasting well with the clear white glaze. The condition of this jar and cover is very good, no chips or cracks and a very even glaze. The ginger jar stands firmly and securely on its carved hardwood stand with cabriole legs. This is a superb example of a 19th Century Chinese famille verte ginger jar and wherever displayed, would add style and elegance to any room.
