The diminutive molded baluster jar painted in underglaze blue, the roe diapered ground reserved with intricately molded insects, flowerheads (or tassels) and leaves,

alternating molded vignettes of Chinese riverscapes depicting two islands,

a pine, prunus and pagoda to the right, bamboo to the left, siding a Chinese man in a sampan,

with rocks below and birds and a moon (or sun) above;

the neck and cover with silver collar and cover, each enhanced with finely beaded decoration;

the silver unmarked and likely Dutch of the late 18th  / early 19th  century

 

Condition : Good to excellent, sharply v-pointed footrim with a single foot rim chip;

a short curved hairline on one shoulder, visible in the images;

minor glaze losses to some of the raised moldings (in the firing);  dents to silver lid.

 

Roe diapering was a Kangxi through early Qianlong form of decoration, going out of fashion around 1750
