Export Blue & White Jar, Qianlong Period.
A fine and rare Fitzhugh type Large 18th Century Chinese Export porcelain Qianlong period blue and white jar. The whole of the exterior well painted in blue of good tone with a fenced garden pattern. The plants are painted issuing from rockwork which include bamboo, peony and prunus. The neck painted with a stylised scroll border and cell pattern. Typical lathed neck. It is interesting to note that Qianlong jars seem to be much rarer than earlier Kangxi jars. Size. 8.5, maximum width 8 inches. Condition. Excellent, no chips or restoration, however the base has a mis-fired patch which has star crazed and the interior has same star crazed here and there, none of which pass through to the opposite side. The sides have a few small fine glaze hairlines which also do not pass through. These somehow almost look like soft paste glazed. There are also two tiny holes drilled each side of the neck done just after manufacture to secure the lid down for export, not damage.
