“Sampaio e Melo” Vase
Author: Unknown
Origin: Jingdezhen Kilns, China
Dating: 1700-1720 (Qing Dynasty, Kangxi period)
Material: Porcelain
Dimensions (cm): 118 x Ø 52,5
Inv. no.: PD0056

One of two large vases with lids, produced on a lathe made of polychrome white porcelain in cobalt blue, green, yellow, sepia and golden colours with a European-themed decoration. These vases display the Coat of Arms of the purchasing Household: Sampaio & Melo.

Even though these pots are apparently similar, they are not a pair. One of the pots displays an erudite painting, with a balanced adornment in scale relative to the bottom. The drawings are delicately delineated in great detail and careful painting, with watercolours precisely painted, always respecting the outline boundaries of the drawings.
