Description

Bottle with animals and birds in a landscape. Porcelain, thrown, painted in cobalt-blue and glazed. The bottle has a tall cylindrical neck and a wide pear-shaped body. It is painted in cobalt-blue with pairs of reclining deer, of cranes and of naively rendered quails, placed seemingly at random in a hilly landscape among a small pavilion and trees. The glaze has a pale bluish tint. Traces of a fine sandy fire-clay support remain on the footring.
