This pair of Blue and White vases painted in the Kangxi era some three hundred years ago are elegantly decorated with slim ladies enjoying their pastime in picturesque private gardens. In the foreground we see jagged Taihu rocks upon which grow flowering peach blossoms. Birds are flying and singing in the sky. Both the necks and the rims of the vases are painted with diaper patterns. One of the pair of covers shows floral motifs while the other is decorated with boys and flowers. These complementary themes are often seen together.
Chinese Kangxi Blue and White porcelain at its best equals the fine Chinese Blue and White porcelain produced during the earlier periods. It has charming sophisticated designs many of which were inspired by earlier Chinese Blue and White porcelains. Kangxi porcelain also displays the great technical expertise that produced brilliant under-glaze sapphire blue painting, and a fine, thin, white, slightly bluish glaze applied to a very white body.
