Brushed with dark cobalt blue atop a creamy white field, this Qing-dynasty tea leaf jar beautifully exemplifies the timeless allure of blue-and-white porcelain. The tea jar has a gently tapered form with a wide base and high shoulders that flow into a constricted neck. The hand-painted decoration depicts an auspicious phoenix nestled in a tree alongside songbirds in flight, soaring through the sky. The auspicious phoenix is an important symbol in Chinese culture, a powerful mythical creature embodying prosperity and benevolence. The tea leaf jar is complete with a circular lid adorned with a floral design at the center and feather-like detailing on the sides.
