Catalogue Note

A cover of this form would have been used on a small square jar, such as the one in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum illustrated in William Bowyer Honey, The Ceramic Art of China and Other Countries of the Far East, London, 1945, pl. 93a. A jar of the same shape dating to the Yongle / Xuande period was sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 30th October 2002, lot 275.
