Late 19th Century Ming Style Blue & White Zhadou


In stock


Blue and White Porcelain Zhadou (leys jar or slops jar) have a compressed globular body with a trumpeting neck. Jars of this shape are called zhadou, aka “slops jars” as they were primarily used for food or drink wastes. This zhadou features a beautiful floral spray design with a thin Greek key design in the middle of the vase and topped with a palmette motif on the rim of the vase. It has Qianlong mark although it is late 19th Century. This small vase is perfect for uplifting a small bouquet of flowers.

Place of Origin



Porcelain/ Cobalt Glaze


No visible scratches or chips to the porcelain. Has an outside underglaze and white glaze inside. The glaze is glossy. Some glaze cracks throughout. Judging by the glaze, decoration, foot characteristics, and presence of glaze cracks typically not found on older blue and white pieces, despite having a Kangxi mark, it is late 19th Century.
