Description This tall baluster vase consists of a white porcelain body covered with creamy white glaze. The round body, widest at the shoulders, slopes to a circular foot. Two lion heads with curly manes and brows appear in high relief on either side beneath the shoulders and are pierced through the mouth. The vase also has a wide flared mouth separated from the body by a notch in the paste. When looking into the mouth, one can see where the thick application of glaze ends.
