Objects like this ornately decorated porcelain vase were made mostly for Europeans markets. Plain vessels were formed in Jingdezhen and shopped to Guangzhou, where artisans painted them with colorful enamels and then fired them again in special kilns. Depending on a client's needs, the motifs could be either European or Chinese. This exquisite vase is completely painted with Chinese figures, landscapes, and flowers.
