Large Antique Nanking Crackle Glaze Warrior Vase - CHINA. A nicer than usual example of a Nanking vase, featuring battle scenes, probably from the classic Chinese novel: "The Story of the Three Kingdoms". Crackle glazed and beautifully enameled in Famille Rose colors. The addition of blue and yellow are unusual for this type of vase.
