Description:
A cylindrical vessel on three cabriole feet covered with a green glaze that is iridescent in some areas. A hunting scene in low relief encircles the body of the vessel framed at top and bottem by raised ribs. It shows running hunters, hunters on horseback, a variety of animals and two faux ring handles. The conical lid depicts a Taoist paradise with the Central Mountain rising out of the waves.
