Lot 96: A Large 19th Century Chinese Famille Rose Vase: a rare and fine piece of unusually large dimensions and particularly accurate and elegant decoration. The body and neck richly enamelled with a dynamic, flowing motif of four-clawed dragons with sinuous, lightly floating bodies amidst smoothly moving clouds. The shoulders embellished with medallions containing Buddhist symbols. A delicate wave motif around the base. A key-fret band around the mouth rim and a stiff leaves band around the neck. Two moulded elephant heads applied to the neck. All emerging on a deep blue ground H 92cm
