Object Description
From the Fa Hua porcelain factory. The heavy, florid colors were inspired by cloisonée work. The item is for display rather than use, and is a late example of the traditional Ming porcelain. The wine jar has very thick walls and is decorated with thick turquoise, chartreuse, and purple glazes. The sides have cut-out decorative elements. The jar has a wide ovoid body and short, contracted neck, with a wide open mouth. The design is one relating to the tea ceremony, with floral and pine elements.
