Chinese Indigo Blue and White Scroll Jar

About

This charming blue and white scroll jar speaks to an era and way of life long gone. During the Qing dynasty, a jar of this scale would have stored painted scrolls in a scholar's studio. The painted scenes that decorate this contemporary vessel provide a window to that moment in time. On one side men carry goods to market using balanced yokes, the other depicts an artist scholar seated at his desk.
