This is a copy of a Fencai porcelain vase, which is a common decorative porcelain vase from the Kangxi reign, Qing dynasty (17th century). It is decorated with an irregular design like the crackle of ice in red overglaze with plum blossoms and butterflies in red and green, putting together the most popular objects in nature among Chinese craftmakers of the time. On the base is a six-character reign mark in seal script in a blue underglaze.
