A Large Chinese Jar & Cover. 'Clobbered' Decoration
 

A Large Chinese Jar & Cover. 'Clobbered' Decoration.  A truly exceptional example of an early 18th.Century Chinese export blue and white jar and cover that has been 'Improved' later in the Century in Europe by over decorating the original blue and white design with extensive polychrome enamels and gilding. This type of over decoration is generally ascribed to Holland but was also done in Britain.  Note that the jar had been used before the over decorating took place as there are two small holes drilled on opposite sides of the shoulder, presumably to secure the cover in place, it could well be why the cover has survived intact. The enamels and gold enters the holes showing the decoration was done after the holes were made. The areas of the vase that have not been over decorated the glaze has a silky matt texture, as though the jar was etched with acid prior to decorating to ensure a good 'key' for the onglaze decoration.  A truly outstanding example of this type of 'clobbered' ware.  Measures 23cm. high and about 20cm. diameter ( 9 inches high, 8 inches diameter)

Condition

Very good. Both jar and cover are in very good condition with just one or two minor frits and small chips. There are a few glaze cracks to the interior but they do not come through to the outside. The enamels and gilding are in truly exceptional condition, worthy of a Museum collection!
