item#: 1410589
price: $1,200.00
Massive Chinese Qing dynasty baluster form lidded general’s helmet jar decorated in underglaze blue on a white porcelain ground with a Yuan inspired pond scene of ducks swimming among lotus. A ruyi-head border and four animal mask handles are high on the shoulder below the short neck. A lappet band extends around the tapering foot. The slightly recessed base is unglazed. A Buddhist lion dog finial is at the top of the wide domed lid. 24 1/2” high x about 15" diameter. Weight: 35 lbs. The stand is 10" high and is included with the jar. Very good overall condition for its size and age. The lid is married but also appears to be antique. There are a few short hairlines and some minor wear to the neck. A small chip is on the edge of the lid. From the collection of an elderly woman in Kingman, Arizona. Purchased in Indonesia in 1977 with a 16th century attribution. A copy of the original receipt is included with the images.
