Description

In Chinese lore, peaches symbolize immortality, and the number nine represents perfection and the eternal. The two auspicious motifs are brought together in this boldly decorated vase, where nine ripe peaches in beautiful shades of pink and pale yellow are scattered among blossoms and leaves.

Although this vase bears an inscription on its base attributing it to the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1736–1795), the slightly flattened shape of the body and the colors of the overglaze enamels are more typical of nineteenth-century wares.
