A Chinese famille noire style porcelain vase. The square club-shaped vase has a tall cylindrical neck with flared lip and features dynamic scenes of warriors, noblemen, and scholars. The depictions are executed in various shades of green, yellow, and peach set against an olive-black ground. The underside of vase is marked “Bestowed during the reign of Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty” (大清康熙年製 Da Qing Kangxi nian zhi), however, the vase likely dates from the early Republic era (1912-1949) or late Qing dynasty (1644-1911). A previous dealer’s label and date attribution label are also affixed to the underside alongside the previous museum’s inventory number “1938.0220”. The vase is presented on a reticulated wooden stand.
Collected in the late 19th and early 20th century and donated to a Private Midwestern Institution in 1938
