The vases of a rouleau shape, the high and straight neck slightly everted. The body decorated with two birds flying among rocks, peonies and flowering trees. The base of the neck is adorned with herringbone pattern while the neck is with lotus scrolls. The base is glazed. The vases are painted in a particularly spontaneous and free hand way, the glaze is shiny and bright. The overglaze enamels (iron red, turquoise green, yellow and blanc) and gold are contrasting with the underglaze blue. This one, of dark and intense hue is a sign of the quality of the production.
During Kangxi period (r. 1661-1722), craftsmen developed a new palette of enamels known as « Famille verte » which was going to replace the wucai palette. The specificity of « Famille verte » is the use of overglaze blue instead of underglaze blue in wucai palette. In our case, the use of underglaze blue leads us to believe that these vases are from the beginning of Kangxi period.
