Ca. 1700 - 1720, early 18th century
Kangxi Period, Qing Dynasty
Porcelain with underglaze cobalt blue
H: 23 cm (with cover), 21.6 cm (without cover)
From a Jackson, Mississippi private collection

A striking Kangxi period blue and white covered jar, decorated with classic early 18th century motifs: crackled ice and plum blossom ground, diaper shoulder, and qilin beasts within landscaped cartouches. In Chinese, beast (shou) is a homonym for longevity (also shou) -- hence the "auspicious" beasts theme.

Wood cover included.

Condition report: Basically perfect antique condition, with some surface scratches to lower half of the body.
