    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")

     
    There is a very similar (slightly smaller) jarlet, dated to the Hongzhi period, in the collection of the British Museum, and illustrated in figure 7:7 in the book 'Ming Ceramics in the British Museum by Jessica Harrison-Hall.
     
    Dating: Hongzhi (1488-1505)
     
    This jarlet is in very good condition. There is one small and shallow chip near the base of the jar, visible in the penultimate photo. No cracks and no restoration. There is the expected glaze wear around the widest part of the body. The glaze is in very good condition (see images)
