Chinese Ming dynasty miniature porcelain vase decorated with underglaze cobalt blue butterflies and leafy fruited flowering twigs painted on a white slip set against a creamy crackle glazed ground. The base and interior are glazed, but the foot rim is unglazed. A characteristic luting line is evident around the mid-section. The mouth rim is dressed brown. Circa 15th/16th century. 4 5/8” high. Very good overall condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. From the private collection of a former American expatriot to Guangzhou and Beijing from 1983-1987.
