Blue and white jar with peony pattern

 

Yuan Dynasty
Height: 27.3cm
Mouth diameter: 20.4cm
Foot diameter: 19cm

Straight mouth, short neck, round shoulder, contracted belly, shallow ring foot, and sand bottom. White glaze is applied to both inner and outer surfaces, and blue and white is adorned on the outer surface. The rim is decorated with interlocking branches and flowers, the shoulder interlocking lotuses, the belly interlocking peonies, and the part close to foot upturned lotus petals.

The blue and white jar has bright color and smooth strokes. Each layer of the flower patterns is separated by two strings, so that the pattern looks elaborate but not over-elaborate, complicated but not disorderly, which not only highlights the theme pattern, but also adds a touch of neat arrangement.
