Chinese porcelain early 18th century moulded jar and cover made during the Emperor Kangxis reign at the start of the 18th century at the kilns in Jingdezhen.

Painted in shaped and moulded panels of either Long Elizas or jumping boys in under glaze blue.

To the base of the jar inside the foot rim is an Artemisia leaf. This is one of the eight ordinary symbols, the symbol associated with the driving away of evil coming from the story of the rebel Hung Huang. he captured the city of Chang and those inside the city who were loyal to him hung Artemisia leaves on their doors, those who did not were slaughtered.

the white metal lids and mounts are probably silver and added later.
