Qing dynasty, probably Tongzhi period, late 19th century, China.

Impressive Chinese Famille Rose hexagonal turquoise ground porcelain urn, of rounded six-sided tapered form with a small round lid. The term Famille Rose (French for "pink family") was introduced together with Famille Verte ("green family") in 1862 by Albert Jacquemart to classify Qing dynasty porcelain by their colour palettes. Famille Rose was popular in the 18th and 19th century, and it continued to be made in the 20th century. Large quantities of Famille Rose porcelain were exported to Europe, United States and other countries.

Colour and unusual shape make this late 19th century Chinese export urn a standout. The fantastic hand painted traditional design features a peacock, dragon, flourishing tree of auspicious foliage, grass and large peonies in lovely shades of green and pink. At the bottom, the urn is marked with an overglaze iron red six character square seal (Tongzhi mark). Excellent condition. Age-related wear and minimal paint loss. Size approx. 34,0cm x 20,5cm x 20,5cm. 

Provenance: Finnish private collection
