Flambée glazed peaches in a dish.

A nice decoration piece, heavy earthenware base covered by a rich, runny glaze in shades of emerald green, celadon green and streaks of burgundy red, inspired by the color and texture of ripe peaches.

Peaches, a symbol of immortality, are consumed by the immortals due to their mystic virtue of conferring longevity on all who eat them. Immortality (or the wish for a long and healthy life) are a common symbol in Chinese art,

Very good condition, unglazed bottom with an impressed mark (see photo).
