A charming example of provincial blue-and-white pottery, this petite lidded jar from the late Ming dynasty (1368-1644) is cloaked in a cool grey underglaze and decorated with expressive dark blue brushwork of abstract florals. The jar has a rounded body with high shoulders and a short footed base, topped by a domed lid with a simple knob and flared lip. The bluish-grey glaze shows its age beautifully, textured by a crackled finish and pitted wear.

Small hairline crack along rim of lid.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
