Hi John

Here is the legend of Lu Dong Bin and the fairy White Peony (Bai Mu Dan).

One day, Lu Dong Bin was asked by some villagers to fight a demon nearby their hometown. The demon has been creating havoc in the area.

Lu then discovered that the most effective way to destroy it was to use the magical hairpin from the Western Heavenly Queen (Xi Wang Mu). As it was not respectful for him to approach the Queen directly, Lu decided to seek the help of one of her fairy maids, White Peony (Bai Mu Dan).

During a feast hosted by the Queen, Lu teased Bai on several occasions to get her attention. When he finally did, he asked her for her assistance, which she compiled. Bai then managed to borrow the hairpin from the Queen and with that, Lu successfully defeated the demon.

For your reference.

Regards.

Richard, in your first response you used the word "versus" between the Immortals. She did end up helping him?

Hi John

Yes, she did. She borrowed the hairpin from the Queen and assisted Lu to defeat the demon.

Regards.

Richard, thanks for the background on the bottle. This next example is small [48mm] and is nicely painted with a fisherman in his boat. From an internet auction in 2015.
