Set alongside the four treasures of the study - the calligraphy brush, ink, paper, and inkstone - the scroll pot was a fixture of every traditional scholar’s studio. Drawing on China's long-standing blue-and-white porcelain tradition, this scroll pot sets deep cobalt blue underglaze decoration against a smooth white backdrop. Repeated on all sides of the large vessel, the hand-painted design depicts tall lotus plants, dotted with blossoms, leaves and seed pods. Emerging from the mud of riverbanks yet pristine and beautiful, the lotus plant is a symbol of purity and perfection and an emblem of summer. The elegant and streamlined form of the glazed pot is defined by its straight walls that extend to a thin, articulated lip.
