Qing Dynasty
Cowl-shaped Pitcher

The pitcher shown above dates to the Qing Dynasty (1636 and 1911). It has an intertwining chrysanthemum design with blue and red figures on a light blue ground. The technique is called underglaze red, although in this case very little of the red is brought out. Underglaze red was introduced to Chinese porcelain early in the Yuan Dynasty. The lid is shaped to fit the spout as well as the fill opening.
