The porcelain potted in Zun shape vase, thick and large vase, a middle-heavy body tapered gracefully to rounded shoulders converging into tall cylindrical straight open lip, raised on wide splayed flat foot base.

The main body delicately fine depicted with immortals figures in relax position below scrolling ruyi, vapor, dense tree, the rocky and flowers blooms, all in the a salubrious garden landscape. Big flying crane trough cumulus clouds interspersed with scrolling interlocking ruyi, flowers blooms and fresh foliage on the shoulder.
