Physical description

Vase and lid, part of a five-piece garniture with two beakers and three vases and lids. The vase is of slender baluster form with tapering neck, having low domed lid with spreading rim and surmounted by a small lion handle. Framed in underglaze blue scrollwork on either side below a frieze of intricately diapered design on the shoulder are upright panels with scenes of figures with buildings and landscape in background, the scenes largely repeating, in a palette of heavy enamels with much iron-red, on a ground of red trefoil cell diaper. Panels on the lid contain landscapes. There is some use of gilding.
