A nice quality small Chinese jar, decorated in underglaze blue, and dating from the Ming Hongzhi period c1500. The jar is decorated around the sides with four large ruyi cloud panels filled with stylised lotus flowers and spirals separated by tassled pendants. The slightly concave base is unglazed, and the thick and tactile glaze has run down to the base, leaving one or two small areas where the glaze has 'missed'. The cobalt blue has broken through in places to give a 'heaped and piled' effect. Height 5.7cm (2.2")
