TEST ITEM - A large Chinese wucai baluster vase, 18th/19th century

A large Chinese wucai baluster vase, 18th/19th century

五彩人物大瓶, 18/19世纪


heavily potted and of elongated baluster form with an everted rim, decorated with figures in a rocky and tree lined landscape scene, depicting the Emperor seated with attendants and guards in front of four figures holding objects, one figure presumably Li Bai holding a boot, one side with a large rising cloud, the neck decorated with chrysanthemums and peonies in coloured enamels above a crackular pattern band in underglaze blue, the base unglazed


Li Bai (701-762), the famous Tang poet, is identified by his holding of a boot, as seen here, as he was of such bold character that he was known to have drunk wine from a boot before the Emperor
