Description

This impressive moon flask represents a well-known type of form and decoration that was perfected in imperial wares made at Jingdezhen during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor. An inscription on the base claims that the vase was made during the Qianlong era, but the lack of subtle shading in the painted design suggests a nineteenth century date. Potters at Jingdezhen continued to mark their vessels with Qianlong reign dates well into the nineteenth century, for reasons that are not clear.
