Large vase-gourd bianhu said Moon Flask, China, Guangxu, Qing dynasty

Very large vase-gourd (or gourd of pilgrim) said "Moon flask" form "bianhu", shouldered two handles in the shape of dragons, enhanced with gilding and painted with polychrome enamels in the style of the Rose Family of foliage floral framing medallions on the flattened belly with a scene of imperial hunting in a landscape waved on one side and two pheasants in a floral decoration of peonies and planted with a magnolia on the other. The neck is adorned with peonies while the base is decorated with stylized waves.

In China, if the dragon is the supreme imperial symbol, the pheasant for its part is the symbol of the imperial authority, the peonies and lotuses are the imperial flowers par excellence.

This vase of a very remarkable size presents itself in a superb state, without noticeable accident.

On the reverse side is a four-character Guangxu sigillary mark in iron red.

China, around 1880.
Guangxu period - Qing dynasty.

Dimensions: Height 50.5 cm - Width 36 cm - Thickness 10.5 cm.
Base 16.5 x 12.5 cm.
