* The 'Long Eliza' depiction of a slender Chinese lady with a flower
was very popular one on both Kangxi and later European porcelains.
In The Netherlands, she was named 'Lange Lijs', or 'Lange Lijzen',
which became 'Long Eliza' in English.
The motif is frequently combined with that of the 'Dancing Boy',
('Zotje') as shown here, as on this particular mustard pot.
Condition : Excellent; firing crack to the glaze at handle base.
