Straits Chinese Porcelain Baluster Jar with Lotus Decoration on Stand

A 19th Century baluster shaped jar and cover with yellow ground, lotus decoration and reserve panels of birds and flowers on a wooden stand. The porcelain has been decorated with over glazed enamel, providing durability and a more varied palette of colour.

First seen as early as the 12th Century, over glaze enamelling became increasingly popular across the world for its ability to create a saturation of colour in porcelain ware, bringing vibrancy and complexity to the art work.
