Beaker vase. Hard-paste porcelain painted in green, yellow, iron-red, aubergine, turquoise and blue enamels with details in black. The slender cylindrical body is flared towards the mouth and base and resting on a low gently domed foot. It is decorated on a stippled, florette-strewn ground with four tall vertical panels, two enclosing 'Hundred Antiques' and Emblems, alternating with two enclosing chrysanthemums growing in jardinières with tall banners rising behind. There is a band of florettes round the base and a cell-diaper band reserved with Lozenge and Jewel vignettes round the mouth. A narrow border on the interior of the rim is left unglazed.
