A fabulous baluster form vase decorated with a garden scene of birds among late-summers turning foliage dating from the opening of the 20th century. The decoration is far above the average export ware vessel, with ixquisite detail and luscious graduation in the colors of the withering leaves. About the neck and base are floral dials in gold and bold colors. The Taotie beast head handles are highlighted in gold like Egyptian masks. It is 12 inches (30 cm) tall. Other than some minor wear to the gold on the rim, and one slight firing flaw (see close-up details) it is in excellent condition.
