A LARGE PAIR OF CHINESE FAMILLE ROSE JARS AND COVERS

YONGZHENG PERIOD (1723-1735)

Each finely enameled in a vibrant famille rose palette with a continuous scene from "The Lady Generals of the Yang Family", one jar with a tranquil depiction of the ladies being poled through a lotus pond, picking blooms, while one kneels before the family chieftain, offering him a prize lotus. The other jar showing officials on a balcony watching the Lady Generals as they practice for battle, galloping through a rose arbor below, one rider with her whip in her mouth while she fixes her hair, one official straddling the railing in his excitement, all below a border of multi-colored interlocking rings on the shoulder, the interlocking rings repeated around the domed covers below vignettes of further ladies on a lotus pond, the knops biscuit Buddhist lions with green tails and manes of blue curls

26 ½ in. (67.3 cm.) high, each
