15th century small Vietnamese white stoneware jar with underglaze blue painting. The jar comes from an old Japanese collection, and must have been part of a sunken ship cargo. It is very similar to Hoi An material lifted off Cu Lao Cham, central Vietnam. Beautiful bubbly glaze with fine crackle, central register with excellent free painting of alternating playful birds and clumps of bamboo grass. Pendant leaves around its mouth, old Japanese lacquer repair to the mouth. Very strong piece, has wonderful presence. Height 2 1/16 inches, diameter 2 1/16 inches.
