Qing Dynasty Dehua Ware Blue-and-white Porcelain Jar | China, 18C


A blue-and-white jar fired at the Dehua kiln in Fujian province during the Qing dynasty. The blue-and-white of the Dehua kilns, which used Japanese cobalt from the early Qing dynasty, have an atmosphere somewhat similar to that of Japanese underglaze blue (sometsuke) ware from Hizen in Kyushu. The painting drawn on the round shaped plump body is reminiscent of the docks often depicted on Imari ware of the Edo period.

The character “士(Shi)” is drawn on the bottom. There is a thin bird’s-foot-like hairline on the side, but no water leakage.
