Unusual early Guangxu Qianjiang jar by Cheng Wannian. With a cyclical date of either 1874 or 1934. Painted on one side with a figure lounging below the boughs of a tree. The other side with information on the artist.
Height: 4 3/4 in x diameter: 7 in.


The porcelain is in generally good condition. The porcelain has minute firing flaws and wear throughout, particularly along the interior. There is no crazing; however, there are stretches throughout the piece which are discolored brown, consistent with its age and use. No chips to the rim; it is discolored and has black accretion, 1 1/2 inches long. Dust collected to its surface, particularly to recessed areas. The paint has faded somewhat; some parts are peeled off. Near the pine tree and a male figure, there is a network of hairline cracks that are discolored brown. Wear to its foot rim. There is a 1/4 inch long chip and a 1 1/2 inch long uneven surface to the foot rim. No sign of restoration under UV inspection. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email with any condition questions.
