Antique Chinese Blue and White Covered Jars with Boys

About

A pair of large antique Chinese blue and white covered jars painted in a soft shade of blue. Each jar is decorated with flowers, a butterfly. The most interesting aspect of the vases is a scene with two young boys peeking out from behind a large jar. Around the boys we see scrolling leaves and birds perched on branches. The scene with the young boys: signifies hope, fertility and the future. This auspicious scene is repeated on the reverse. Dimensions: Height 18.5 inches Condition: Excellent Price: $ 15,200 Background The color blue gained special significance in the history of Chinese ceramics during the Tang dynasty (618-907). The distinctive color in blue-glazed pottery and porcelain comes from cobalt ores imported from Persia, which were a scarce ingredient at the time and used in only limited quantities. In the Yuan (1279-1368), Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties in particular, different types of cobalt ore and methods of application determined the distinctive feature of the shades of blue that appeared on blue-and-white porcelain ware.
