The ovoid jar stands on a slightly spreading foot, has a short upright neck, and is painted in blue with a floral decor. Three large cartouches containing flower bouquets have been applied to the belly, separated from each other by panels with flowers, bands and strips. Elements that resemble a window and a panelled cupboard are painted on the right side of each cartouche. The shoulder has a broad band with four panels, filled with two types of double flowers, separated from each other by a leaf on a blue background. Ornaments are applied to the neck. A band with stylized leaves is painted above the foot.
Dimensions: height 23 cm / 9.05 in., diameter 19 cm / 7.48 in.
A convex pot with lid with the same panel decor filled with figures in chinoiserie landscapes is in the collection of Museum Arnhem (inv. no. AB 8317). A second, more ovoid specimen, also featuring chinoiserie landscapes, is in The Art Institute of Chicago (inv. no. 1944.289), and a third lidded jar with chinoiserie landscapes is in Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (inv. no. 2012.594) , both in the United States.
The floral decoration is inspired by porcelain from the period of the last Ming emperor Chongzhen (1628-1644). The flowers and plants on Delft pottery from the period 1650-1680 are much more exuberant and rendered more naturalistically than on the Chinese originals.
