Chinese early 18th century blue and white porcelain rounded jar made during the reign of the Emperor Kangxi. the Jar is painted with emblems associated with the Confucian Scholar including the vases with peacock feather, jardinières, dings, flowers and mah-jong board. Peacock feathers are associated with the heavenly throne and also the Empress these are interspersed with some of the precious treasures including the Pearl of wisdom

To the base there is a double circle in under glaze blue.

Difficult to be certain what the jar was for as the rim has an internal lip which would be perfectly suited as a Huqqa base which is also indicative of its size and rounded shape.

excellent potting and bright blue painting
