Height: 21cm

Of flattened baluster form with an angled shoulder and a pair of tubular handles at the neck, the sides of the vase carved in high relief with twelve bats, highlighted by the mottled russet inclusions in the stone, in flight amidst billowing RUYI-shaped clouds, fitted with a stepped cover with an oval finial, the semi-translucent stone of a pale bluish celadon tone.
