Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Jarlet
This small porcelain jar was made during the late 15th to early 16th century. It is "heavily-potted" and coated in a thick glaze with a floral pattern decoration in underglaze blue of good colour. Around the rim edge is insignificant "fritting" to the glaze, invariably seen on such ware of this period. The flat base remains unglazed.
Diameter 6.5 cm. This jarlet is in fine condition with no repair or restoration.
For information: similar jarlets were recovered from the "Lena Shoal" shipwreck that has been dated to be within the last ten years of the fifteenth century, which falls within the reign of Hongzhi (1488 - 1505).
This item is part of a recently acquired old English collection comprising mostly Ming Dynasty blue & white porcelain but also including a few earlier celadons and some South-East Asian ceramics.
