A Rare pair of square section vases with "fencaï" (Famille rose) decoration of landscapes on one and scenes inspired by the "Romance of the Western Chamber" for the other, original and contemporary porcelain stands from the period of manufacture of the vases, reign of Yongzheng (1723-1735),
This pair of vases was designed with porcelain stand from its very manufacture in the 18th century. This refined model, with pastel colors typical of Yongzheng production and the emblematic "Famille rose" (terminology of Albert Jacquemart), was undoubtedly intended as much for the export market abroad as for the Chinese domestic market.
An identically shaped vase is illustrated by Yang Xin in the Complete Collections of the Palace Museum ("Porcelains with Cloisonné enamel decoration and Famille rose decoration, The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Beijing, vol 39, n ° 49, p. 59).
