Chinese porcelain pot, decorated with tree peonies, rocks and birds. The decor is identical on both sides. Two gilt bronze and copper handles in the shape of stylized lion masks have been added. It is important to specify that these handles are of Chinese manufacture from the 18th century and are of excellent quality. This type of mask is sometimes found on 18th century Chinese incense burners. It is possible that these handles were mounted as soon as the vase was created for export or for the Chinese market because you never find them on export porcelains, they are carefully fixed by two nuts. The mask part is in embossed gilded copper and the rings are in gilded bronze. The quality of the blue is exceptional, the photos were taken in natural light without filter. The upper edge is not glazed, so there must have been a lid that has now disappeared. Kangxi period late 17th century early 18th. A crack framed on photo. Width: 14cm H: 11.5cm.
