Ming Dynasty Yunnan Dali Ware Blue and White Bottle | China, 15-16C

¥35,000 JPY

A sake bottle fired in a Dali kiln in Yunnan province in the Ming dynasty. Locally produced cobalt, which contains a large amount of manganese, shows a dull colour. It was made after the demand for grave goods was taken away by Jingdezhen and shifted to the production of household goods, and it was mainly used for carrying wines. It is a simple and powerful work as a model of fork art, but it is conspicuous that it follows the grave goods up to that point in the painting, such as the inclusion of the cloudy pattern that represents the heavenly world.

There are some defects occurred during the kiln process, and glaze flaking, also the rim is slightly repaired, but the condition is generally good.
