ImageAccident involving Chinese porcelain vases

The three vases - from a set of five which entered the collections in 1948 - are Chinese, Qing Dynasty, reign of Kangxi (1662-1722) and date from the late 17th or early 18th century. Painted in enamels and decorated with peonies and other flowering plants, phoenixes, pheasants, butterflies and insects, they are currently being evaluated for conservation.
