Decorated porcelain stand (famille verte). Low oblong shape with narrow upturned ends, used on the desk to hold written scrolls. Early Da Qing Dynasty porcelain, invested with a superb overglaze decoration in famille verte colors of the Kangxi period. The top, grounded with green crackled-ice pattern, includes a central foliated reserve bearing a landscape in varying shades of green and coral red, which is flanked by two other reserves with coral red dragons and fungus (lingzhi). The sides are finished in green, yellow, and purple scroll and anguiliform borders. The teakwood stand is finely carved with openwork to represent the bamboo, prunus and pine, or "three plant friend" motif. White parts are covered with a thin colorless glaze as is the base.
