Chinese early 18th century blue and white ovoid jar, made during the reign of the Emperor Kangxi. This type of jar is often erroneously referred to as a ginger jar, although they were made as decorative ornaments.

Excellent colour and potting with fine painting of a pair of Chilongs flying with tendrils of lotus in their mouths. The mythical beasts are surrounded by clouds and the emblems of the precious treasures. Chilongs are hornless dragons, and it is thought that they have their origins in Western Han Mythology.

The jar was made at the kilns at Jingdezhen

The wooden lid is a replacement one of good quality.
