REF No. 6376
chinese export porcelain famille rose massive tankard and cover


Qianlong period circa 1740
European Market
Height: 11 inches; 28 cm

A rare Chinese porcelain tankard, brightly decorated in famille rose enamels with precious antiques and flowers, the handle in iron-red, with European metal hinged mounts and finial to the cover.

This has some similarity to a small group of covered ewers of the period but this form is very unusual. An almost identical ewer is recorded in a private collection, with the same decoration and of the same scale, suggesting that this may have been ordered as part of a set.
