A silver mounted 16th century Annamese vase with definitely the strongest and deepest cobalt blue ever reported on Annamese ware worldwide. Take me at my word that neither in any museum collection nor in any private collection can be found any Annamese piece with a better cobalt blue than the blue of this vase. The cobalt blue of this vase is even better than the very prominent " Mohammedan Blue " or " Ahmadan Blue " of the Yuan Dynasty.
Also the glaze of the vase is excellent.
Annamese ware ( Vietnam ) 16th. century. The silver mount later.
H : 29,2 cm.
Condition : The neck of the vase broken away in ancient times and later replaced with a silver mount. The lower part of the vase in perfect condition.
