Very Imposing Superb and rare Chinese Export Qianlong period (1736-95) soup tureen 35cm (14) in length. Painted with panels of river landscapes and mountains with a very unusual painted vase of flowers on a terrace, within wide floral, lattice and floret borders.
Also with a charming pair of boar handles. It has been restored at some point in its history with a very old antique staple repair but the actual crack on the item is not very visible.The lid has no damage at all. It has been priced to take account of the. This is a very large and wonderful tureen. Beautifully decorated and authentic to the mid 18th Century when it was made.
Dimensions: Length 35cm (14") width 22cm (8.5") and height 25cm (10). I will be listing a second Chinese Export Qianlong period tureen of the same dimensions of different design but very similar shortly.
The item is listed elsewhere so the item may be withdrawn without notice.
