A true comfort food, the rice porridge known as congee has been a part of everyday life in China for centuries. Often eaten for breakfast, the dish is frequently accompanied by other flavor agents making this capacious pot a perfect serving vessel. An exquisite example of traditional blue-and-white porcelain, this early 20th-century lidded pot is hand-painted with graceful blades of grass and lush peony blossoms, symbols of love and affection and emblems of spring time.
