A Chinese Blue And White Vase, 16th/17th Century:
H: 18 5/8, Dia: 5 in. (H: 47.31, Dia: 12.70 cm.)
A Chinese blue and white vase
Ming Dynasty Chongzhen period
With two inscriptions and previous sticker to underside.
This blue and white vase is adorned with a variety of painted motifs, including rocks and bamboo to the neck, and seasonal flowers painted to the body. Typical of Chongzhen period porcelains, the blue and white color of this vase is clear and vibrant, while the white ceramic has a faint green tint. However, its shape differs from Chongzhen porcelains, as it has a slim body and a narrow neck. At the end of Ming Dynasty, while the imperial kilns no longer operated, the civilian kilns flourished. Many ceramics produced during that time are as fine as the Ming Jiajing and Wanli imperial artifacts, and this vase is a fine example of the civilian-produced artifacts of that time.$ Similar item at the Albert Museum, No. 1601 & LID-1876.
