Zentner Collection: Antique Japanese Tansu, Asian Works of Art
Porcelain Chinese famille rose vase depicting many disciples of Buddha huddled together atop a cliff, all in brightly-colored garb, with many details. A disciple in green holds a scroll of a sunset; One in purple, physically resembling Buddha, holds a cane or walking stick with a green knapsack tied together with pink ribbons; Another holds a cane with some sort of fruit or vegetable tied around it; One figure does not share the jolly attitude of his peers and is instead seen with a scowl on his face, holding a peach, with a gourd bottle on his back. Smoke billows overhead, suggesting the group had started a fire at some point. Early 20th century Republic Size: 8.25" tall, 3.75" across widest point
