Vietnamese 15th Century Blue & White Jar
This blue & white jar was made during the 15th century. It is attractively-shaped, wider than most other examples of its type and form, with an underglaze blue pattern featuring scrolling floral and lotus leaf patterns. The flat base remains unglazed.
Diameter 9 cm. There is a kiln scar to its side and some minor “nibbles” to the vulnerable mouth edge but there is no repair or restoration.
