A sky blue glazed bottle vase with white slip decoration
Qianlong mark and period
Molded with a flared rim to the waisted neck and raised on a tall foot, the compressed globular body displaying butterflies and birds, narcissus, nandina and lingzhi fungus on opposing sides drawn in white slip on a pale blue ground beneath the colorless glaze covering all surfaces except the iron-washed foot pad, the recessed base centered with the six-character mark in underglaze blue sale script.
