Masterfully formed in spotless white porcelain, this 19th-century pot is exquisitely decorated in the rich cobalt blue that’s characteristic of traditional blue-and-white porcelain. From the intricately detailed floral and vine motifs on the pot’s square sides and lid to the flourishes on the spout, the pot attests to the keen artistry of the artisan who painstakingly executed its marvelous design. Originally intended to dispense flavored vinegar or sauce, we also see this charming vessel offering soy sauce on a sushi platter or cream for morning coffee.
