A famille rose enameled jardinière
Zhou Yousong, dated by inscription to 1881
The thick mouth rim with raised lip surmounting a body of inverted bell shape raised on a vertical foot ring encircling the recessed unglazed base centered by a circular drain hole, the exterior surfaces enameled in the Qianjiang cai or pastel colored palette in large depictions of two wizened scholar recluses discussing a lingzhi fungus while an eager boy attendant looks on, inscribed with the xinsi year and signature.
