A blue and white glazed ceramic meiping vase, with bellshaped lid. It is highly decorated with birds and insects, in slightly differing patterns on the two sides.

Fine condition. Some chipping and light abrasions, dulling of glazed surfaces due to seawater exposure.

Kangxi Period: late 17th century A.D.

Provenance: from the 'Blue Chrysanthemum Wreck'; lost in the South China sea, late 17th century A.D., recovered 2014.

Footnotes: the samples recovered from the shipwrecked cargo are exclusively Chinese ceramics, in the main blue and white porcelain, all assessed by experts to be excellent examples of early Chinese Kangxi in origin of a quality indicating they were manufactured in the famous porcelain center of Jingdezhen in the Jiangsu Province. Jingdezhen kilns made porcelain over two millennia, since the Han Dynasty period. Blue and white porcelain was the most famous product of Jingdezhen, and reached the height of its technical excellence in the early Ching Dynasty. The very high quality cobalt blue colouring, distinctive on the early Kangxi period fine porcelains where it is referred to as 'gem blue' or 'kingfisher blue', is much purer and brighter than that of Ming Dynasty wares.
