Ming blue and white porcelain deep bowl made at the kilns at Jingdezhen. Kraak style crow cup shape and form but wit very unusual decoration which is not Kraak style.

The painting shows two Confucian scholars on a promontory overlooking water towards an island. with a small sun in the sky and foliage on the landscape.

the inside is painted to the bottom with a single scholar on the promontory overlooking the Island while around the sides there are fruiting sprays of peaches.

the body is lightly moulded with groups off three ribs spaced around the bowl. These are lightly done and do not extend the whole way down the body.

the rim is slightly barbed and typically everted.

according to Rinaldi in Kraak a moment in the history of trade the shape in the bowl is classed as Type IV form f and is often referred to as a crow cup, due mainly to many in this shape having a crow painted to the inside on the bottom.

A very unusual design and painting
