Chinese Cobalt at The MAAC

Exceptional and Rare Kangxi Ewer and Cover - at Suchow and Seigel Antiques at The-MAAC.com

The Brooklyn Museum has an interesting post about the history of Korean Porcelain:

At the Brooklyn Museum: Lidded Jar Made for the Unhyeon Palace, second half of the 19th century. Korea, Joseon dynasty. Porcelain with underglaze cobalt decoration. (Brooklyn Museum: http://brooklynmuseum.tumblr.com )

Notably:

“Korean ceramic artists developed cobalt-decorated porcelains in the fifteenth century after admiring Chinese examples for years.”

The admiration is understandable. And these items at our galleries makes it clear why Chinese cobalt porcelain items were so coveted:
