A large famille rose jardinière, 18th century

Lot 2152. A large famille rose jardinière, 18th century. Estimate US$ 5,000 - 7,000 (€4,700 - 6,600). Photo: Bonhams.

Heavily potted, the the tall flaring sides delicately painted with rose bushes, narcissus, nandina, chrysanthemum and lingzhi, all growing around fantastically-shaped garden rocks, the base pierced with five drainage holes. 15 1/4in (38.7cm) diameter

NoteA jardinere with a similar surface texture and style of painting, but dated 19th century was sold at Sotheby's, New York, 18-19 March 2014, lot 493.

The plants depicted on the jardinere are full of auspicious meaning, and convey the desire for longevity to be bestowed by heaven.
