Ming Style Blue & White jar ‘Hu’

A Ming style blue and white jar ‘Hu’, 19th/20th century. The ovoid body painted with bands of waves, scrolling pomegranate and lotus between lappet borders encircling the tall foot and waisted neck, the shoulders applied with animal mask and ring handles, base with apocryphal six character seal mark of Qianlong, 26cm. A similar vase seal mark of Daoguang and of the period was sold at Sotheby’s, New York in September 2021, lot 222. The vase is typical of a group of blue and white wares from the Qing dynasty with motifs adapted from early 15th century porcelain on forms inspired by bronze prototypes. Vases of this form were first produced at the imperial kilns in Jingdezhen during the Yongzheng period (1723-1735) and then in large quantities during the Qianlong period (1735-1795).
Estimate: £1,000 - £1,500 + fees
