The Property of a Gentleman
A rare blue and white vase, yuhuchunping
The pear-shaped vase with a bulbous body rising to the waisted neck and flared rim, supported on a slightly-spreading foot, naturalistically painted in shades of darker and lighter purplish cobalt blue showing the typical 'heaping and piling' with an undulating composite floral scroll with large chrysanthemum, peony, lotus and camellia blossoms, the lobed leaves with cross-hatched veins, all between the shoulders with a tri-lobed leafy scroll and a register of overlapping ruyi-heads above the foot, the neck with upright ruyi-heads enclosing lotus, lingzhi, blackberry lily and chrysanthemum above a key-fret border.
