Kyo Ware Delft-ware Style Flower VaseARCHIVED
Kyo ware flower vase fired in the late Edo period. It is called “Kyo-Holland”, which originated from the Delftware duplication of the first Ogata Kenzan (1663-1743). It has S-shaped ears on a cup-shaped mouth and draws a phoenix pattern with cobalt over white slip. It was a work when the faithful Delft duplication returned to Chinese style painting, but the appearance without one ear is strangely like a European milk pitcher.
The excellent contrast between a pale loquat colour body and brilliant cobalt blue is preferable. The bottom is unglazed but has no water leakage and no noticeable defects except for kiln effects and ear deletions.
