- About Xupes
The extensive collection of oriental ceramics from the estate of PHDS Wikramaratna was sold in 2011 and we were fortunate to secure a large number of items from this collection which we are now offering for sale without reserve.We offer this fine antique Oriental Anamese lidded container shaped like a fruit and painted in underglaze blue with trailing floral designs dating from the Ming Dynasty. Many of these types of pieces were made in Vietnam, often by Chinese artisans and are very similar in style and decoration to early Ming examples. The rounded container stands on a narrow unglazed foot and is hand decorated with trailing floral designs with lotus flower petals painted around the top of the lid with a small raised central knop. There are small splashes of yellow over the blue designs. The container has a collection label to the inside lid along with a price of £65.00 which was paid in the 1980’s when this piece was acquired.GUIDE PRICE£420SizeHeight 5,25cm, Diameter 7cmMarks & OriginAnamese although typically not marked as shownAgeMing Dynasty 1368-1644 Item ConditionThe lidded container is offered in excellent original condition without restoration.
