Jar and cover. Hard-paste porcelain painted in iron-red, green, turquoise, blue, yellow, aubergine and black enamels. The ovid body is tapered towards the slightly countersunk base and painted with four large vertical panels, two enclosing ladies standing beside prunus trees growing in jardinières and two with large gu-shaped vases surrounded by members of the 'Hundred Antiques', reserved against a cell-diaper ground. The cell-diaper ground is repeated in a border round the shoulders and reserved with emblems of the Four Scholarly Accomplishments. A matching border encircling the base of the domed cover is decorated with further 'Antiques' and Emblems.
