Used to store loose leaf tea, this porcelain jar is decorated in a style of overglaze enameling known as "famille rose." Sometimes referred to as "yangcai" or "foreign colors," the famille rose style emerged during the 18th century and employs a pastel palette of opaque overglaze enamels that favors roses and pinks.

This cylindrical tea leaf jar is painted with a bountiful harvest of pumpkins, symbols of abundance, prosperity, and many descendants. Growing off a vine dotted with leaves and squash blossoms, the pumpkins are surrounded by large butterflies, symbols of joy and happiness. A celebration of autumn, this colorful jar brightens up any surface and is the perfect size for storing odds and ends.
