Famille Verte Biscuit Porcelain Rouleau Vase

1850 - 1900

A 19th Century Famille Verte Biscuit Porcelain Rouleau Vase. Well painted with ladies and a scholar by his desk, set within a garden room.

This Famille Verte porcelain vase was made in the late 19th century to for fill a demand for Kangxi biscuit porcelain. It was highly sought after and pieces reached spectacular prices. In the Lady Lever Museum in Liverpool there are 19th century Famille Verte biscuit porcelain vases that were purchased as Kangxi. I remember seeing a large Rouleau vase that was purchased for £11,000 in around 1910. An incredible price when you think a terraced house could be bought for a few hundred pounds. The label on the base from a Paris dealer dates to the beginning of the 20th century.

In excellent condition, there are a couple of very shallow chips to the footrim.
Height 24.5 cm (9 3/4 inches)
