A large Chinese porcelain Imari vase and cover dating from the Kangxi period (1661-1722). The overall vase is lavishly decorated with rich ornamentation of flowers and insects surrounding two centrally rendered pheasants on rockery by foaming waters. The vase’s cover features a partially gilded foo dog.

The term ‘Imari’ originally refers to Japanese porcelain, typically with an underglaze blue decor and red-gold ornamentation in the top glaze. Imari decor was incredibly popular and in great demand in Europe; large quantities of Imari wares were shipped to Europe via Arita. The trade in Chinese Imari – coined after the Japanese example- began at the start of the 18th century.
