A LONGQUAN CARVED BALUSTER ‘LOTUS’ JAR, MING DYNASTY
Katalognummer: CA1218-043
The large and massively potted jar entirely covered with an evenly applied, pale-olive celadon glaze, showing fine crazing
China, 15th century

The deeply and skillfully carved design shows a circumferential central scroll of lotus flowers accompanied by their leaves and tendrils, above a petal lappets border that encircles the slightly waisted base, and beneath two smaller borders with aligned leaves. The convex and recessed base is glazed in celadon and surrounded by a slanted, unglazed foot rim. The inner of the jar is completely glazed as well.

Shape: Baluster
Dimensions: Height 28.8 cm., diameter 33 cm.
Condition: Superb condition with only very little wear and some minor firing irregularities
Provenance: From a prominent Chicago private collection.
