Chinese Ming Geyao Type Blue & White Porcelain Vase
Chinese late Ming dynasty crackle-glazed porcelain pear-shaped vase with bulbous base, waisted neck, and flaring mouth decorated with scattered underglaze blue cobalt butterflies and leafy fruited and flowering twigs. The white glaze has a faint gray hue with darker gray geyao-type crackles. The glazed base bears an underglaze blue square form "yu tang jei qi" mark (ʓ), which means something like "an excellent ware from the hall of jade." The mouth rim has a thin line of pale brown applied wash. The unglazed foot has sand grit adhering. 10 3/8h high. Circa 17th century. No chips or cracks. There is significant burial encrustations and calcification adhering. From the private collection of a former American resident in Guangzhou and Beijing from 1983-1987.
