Chinese blue-and-white porcelain has inspired ceramists worldwide since cobalt was first introduced to China from the Middle East thousands of years ago. Made in the early 20th century this tall vase provides a seamless surface for decoration. Bold strokes of dark cobalt provide the backdrop for a medallion filled with a freely painted still life amid delicately sketched flourishes and botanical motifs.
