Rare Chinese Ming Dynasty Glazed & Incised Pottery Vase - Kochi Ware
This rare pottery bottle, or vase, was made in southern China during the 16th or early 17th century. This type of pottery with its green, and sometimes yellow and brown glazes, was very popular with the Japanese at the time, where it was known as Kochi ware and used in the Japanese tea ceremony.
This bottle is decorated with incised lotus blossom and leaf patterns. It is coated in finely-crackled green, yellow and brown glazes.
Height 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). There is a small area to the lower body where the surface has a firing scar. A small section at the mouth edge has been broken and re-stuck and there are a couple of small areas where the flaking glaze has been touched-in.
