The vase has a baluster shape with a flared rim and is embellished with two gilded Foo Dog handles and four salamanders to the shoulder of the vase.


It is hand-painted in the Canton or Chinese export, rose medallion decoration with four panels consisting of groups of Chinese people in a house setting alternating with groups of flowers , birds and butterflies. It also has panels to the neck with people and floral borders to the shoulder and rim.


This is a heavy vase and very well hand painted with very good gold gilding detail within the decoration, the ladies having hand painted gold highlights in their hair. All these features indicate a higher quality vase with a date earlier in the 19th Century. The base is unmarked.
