Fine Century White Asian Celadon Ginger Jar, 1000 Cranes Design
Finely decorated high quality Chinese Celadon Ginger Jar, signed and hallmarked on the underside by the artist and workshop.
Ovoid in shape with original lid, comes complete with a hand carved wood stand, decorated with Greek Key pattern on the sides, similar to the lid.
The glaze is very very faintly blue/green in colour, the piece is exquisitely hand incised/decorated with traslucent flying cranes, flowers and circles. Almost lace like in apprearance.
An elegantly turned neck - so that this maybe used as a vase if required. The work on the piece almost has a three dimensional effect, it is so good. We have tried to capture the dimensional effect in the photographs.
Signed with the "Ming" characters, however this is mid/late 20th. C.
A very exquisite piece beautifully made.
