Vase. Porcelain, bronze. Canton, 19th century.
Porcelain vase enhanced with a series of bronze elements which have a clear influence of models of French Neoclassicism. The vase has two relief masks on the sides in gold (perhaps Fu lions with a ring in the jaws) and a series of elements (flowers, plants, objects), bands and garlands distributed around four figurative scenes framed with bands or lines (the small ones towards the neck of the piece, the big ones in the body; all with characters dressed in the oriental way located in Chinese-style gardens, palaces and pavilions).
Due to their colors, this type of porcelain pieces are considered to be located within the group of the rose family, introduced in the reign of the Emperor Kangxi (possibly, around 1720) in Chinese pottery and which was very popular during the 18th and 19th centuries. , mainly used in works destined for export to the West (also adopted in numerous European factories), where they were highly appreciated. The enamel of the "pink family" allows a great variety of colors and tones, allowing for more complex scenes and greater detail in flowers, figures, objects, insects, etc. The so-called Cantonese or Canton porcelain was decorated and left Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong and (until 1842, with the Nanking Treaty) the only port from which objects could legally leave for Europe."
