Chinese blue and white Transitional ovoid jar. Made in the 17th century at the kilns at Jingdezhen and very well painted with a naturalistic scene.

The painting shows the hollow rock of the scholar, tree peonies, grasses and a budding plum (prunus) branch. There are two magpies, who are revered in Chinese folklore, one flying and the other perching on the prunus branch.

The magpie is always called the joy bringer. The painting of two magpies symbolises May you meet each other in Joy and are also associated with a happy marriage.

The painting is very good as is the potting
