A rather rare form, the Chinese export porcelain master salt is decorated in famille verte enamels, the well of the salt being a large five petaled prunus blossom, surrounded by a molded birds and prunus border. This is raised upon a molded foot with bands of lotus petals, blossoms and butterflies. Measuring 3 1/4″ tall x 3 1/4″ wide, and in good condition with the exception of a small rim chip. Circa 1700-1720.
