Bulbous, partially cleaned, blue-on-white Chinese porcelain vase with floral motif, rare form. 642 grams, 9" tall and 5" in diameter. Really more Arabic than Chinese in shape, this rare vase has a wide, round body tapering to a long neck with cup-and-saucer shaped lip, 4 floral panels on body and mostly leaves elsewhere, single leaf in center of base, lightly cleaned so that just a small amount of tan worms and film remains, very vivid and beautiful, 100% intact. Recovered from: Unidentified late-1700s/early-1800s wreck off Jolo, Sulu, southwest Mindanao (Zamboanga area, known as the Paticul site), Philippines
