3 chinese vases with rooster

by leidie
(the netherlands)

Hello Peter,
can you please look at these pictures ?
There are 2 beaker vases and one vase with a lid,
all with a same painting.
Can you tell me if they are old, or rather new ?
Thank you in advance !

rooster items
by: peter

The top decoration and colors seem to imitate Yongzheng decorations, but the roosters give the items away as recently made.
Roosters, both of the Qing dynasty and early 20th century were not painted that way, as far as I know. And, the old ones look more lively, bristling with energy.
I'm afraid this is a newer item.
