This listing is for a large and important Chinese porcelain vase in Meiping form. The vase dates to the Ming dynasty, probably late 16th century, and is finely decorated in underglaze blue. The exterior of the vase is hand painted with a continuous scene depicting birds flying and perched in a landscape accented with flowers, trees, and outcroppings of rocks. Detail in the work is excellent as can be seen in the photos. The top tapers to a short and flared neck accented with leaves. It stands on a hand cut foot revealing a fine paste. The underside still retains a label placing this vase in the important Warren E. Cox Collection and was purchased at Parke Bernet sales in 1958. As mentioned the vase is large in size standing an impressive 16.75 inches (42.5 cm) tall and is heavily potted. Overall condition of the vase is very good for a piece of this age and displays beautifully. As can be seen in the photos there are some touch ups to the top rim. Also there is spot on the shoulder where the vase was bumped and has a faint corresponding line that meanders on the shoulder. Finally the base has a clean drill hole. All of these have been pictured for accuracy. Do not miss this rare opportunity to offer on this large piece of Chinese Ming Dynasty blue and white porcelain that will be sold to the highest buyer without reserve.
