Physical description

Bottle painted in two blues and black. The neck of the bottle has a decorated vase-head with a scroll round its small body and a rim which has been filed down. Two flower sprays decorate the rest of the neck and some of the cobalt has run on the vertical surface. The shoulder is emphasised by a leaf scroll. On the reserve-painted body, three large lotus flowers amidst veined leaves separate three partridges without their legs. They have bib-shaped faces and beady eyes.
