    Porcelain Fahua Vase (meiping)

    Ming dynasty, 1368 - 1644

    The classic tableau of a scholar in his mountain retreat, accompanied by a young attendant carrying a zither (qin) is the charming subject of this fahua vase. The scene is outlined in slip or fine threads of clay, enhanced by incising, then glazed in rich turquoise, navy, yellow and aubergine tones.
