Chinese late Ming dynasty Wanli period porcelain kendi with a compressed globular body and mammiform spout decorated on the globular body in underglaze cobalt blue with flowers and scrolling foliage. Leafy peaches and ribboned lozenges decorate the spout and a band around the shoulder. The tubular neck, which flares to a wide disk shaped mouth, is painted with a stiff leaf band. The base is glazed and the foot rim is unglazed. Measures about 7 1/8" high x 6 1/2" diameter. Early 17th century. Very good overall condition with no chips or repairs. There is a fine old browned hairline at the top rim which is more obvious on enlargements 9 and 10 than on the actual piece. This kendi is from a Tucson collection. As the label indicates, it is a deaccession from the National Museum of the Philippines in Manila.
