Published PDF date : Ming early 15th century, Room 95 label text: PDF 601 Bottle with butterflies and daylilies Potters painted flowering daylily plants on either side of this pear-shaped 玉壺春瓶yuhuchun ping each with a butterfly hovering above. In China, heavily-perfumed lilies traditionally symbolise harmony and unity. Their naturalistic depiction here is influenced by ink and colour small-format paintings. The design is extremely rare among surviving Chinese porcelains and very skilfully executed. Each blade-like leaf and the petal edges are outlined with a denser blue and in filled with a paler blue wash. Similarly gradations of blue are achieved in the depiction of the butterfly. This extraordinarily accomplished control of the underglaze cobalt pigment is a characteristic of the finest Yongle blue-and-white wares. Porcelain with underglaze cobalt-blue decoration Jingdezhen, Jiangxi province江西省, 景德鎮 Ming dynasty, Yongle period, AD 1403–24
