A polychrome enameled porcelain jar
Late Qing/Republic period
The exterior surfaces of the large globular vessel covered in a continuous figural scene of a scholar kneeling in a well-appointed home before an altar and two wizened elders perhaps to request the hand of the beauty nearby while three scholar officials observe; the base bearing an iron-red four character Tongzhi mark (fitted lid lost, wear to enamels).
