Rouleau

A Chinese porcelain vase shape with straight cylindrical shape and a straight narrow neck raising from an angular shoulder.

The shape might have become popular among the porcelain artists since it lent itself well to reproduction of prints and paintings, in a similar way as the late 19th century vases and hatstand's lent itself to the qianjiang decorations of that period. The purpose in that case being the same, as transferring printed and painted art onto porcelain.
