A Chinese blue and white small vase of Zhangzhou porcelain made in the early 17th century. Painted in underglaze cobalt blue the vase is decorated across the top with a fishscale pattern.
The main body is decorated with a beautiful bird and flower motif typically rendered in a calligraphic style.
Zhangzhou ware dates to the late Ming dynasty (circa late 16th century to mid-17th century.) Beginning in the 17th century Zhangzhou ware was popular in South East Asia, and Japan, as well as the Netherlands. It is celebrated for the boldness of its potting and the spontaneity of its painting.
Shards of Zhangzhou ware have been found in the first American colony at Jamestown. Zhangzhou wares were also among the ceramics that were found in the cargo of the Witte Leeuw, a Dutch ship that sank in 1613 near St. Helena.
