A pair of 5 colors (wucai) covered jars with a mirrored scene from the Romance of the West Chamber, 17th century, Shunzhi period (1644-1661). Hardwood stands.
It is already rare that a 5-colors wucai ware from the reign of Shunzhi has come to us with its original cover, but this pair is even more exceptional by the fact that we know very few examples of original and complete pairs of wucai porcelains of the reign of Shunzhi, that is to say painted in perfect mirror as is the case here.
