Painted probably by J.E. Stadler with two chinoiserie figures, one holding a parasol and the other seated, flanked by flowering plants issuing from fences with a bird and scattered insects overhead, the rim with four panels of blue and yellow flowers with green leaves reserved against a broad band of iron-red and gilt floral motifs, the lower section painted with pendent leaves and flowers, brown band to footrim (upper section restored).
Note: Two similar vases are in the Dresden porcelain collection (inv. nos. PE 2019 and PE 290, published by U. Pietsch/C. Banz, Triumph der blauen Schwerter (2010), cat. no. 100, and R. Seyffahrt, Johann Ehrenfried Stadler, der Meister der Fächerchinesen, in Keramos 10 (1960) p. 156, ill. 4). These three vases, the decoration of which has been attributed to J.E. Stadler, were probably originally part of the same garniture.
