An attractive pair of small Chinese jars and covers, decorated with overglaze famille rose enamels, and dating from the Qianlong period. The bodies and lids have been shallowly moulded with a petal decoration before the famille rose decoration of flowers and foliage has been painted. Height including lids 10.5cm (4.1”)
An appealing pair of covered jars, quite unusual.
Date: Qianlong (1736-1795)
The jars and covers are in very good condition. Both jars and one cover are in excellent undamaged condition. One lid has a shallow chip from the underside of the rim - please see final image. There is some fritting around the rim of one of the jars. There is wear to the applied gilding around the rims and on the knops.
