A JAPANESE ARITA BLUE-AND-WHITE PORCELAIN BOTTLE WITH INITIALS LvR

Last quarter 17th century

 

With a bulbous body and tapering neck decorated in underglaze blue with branches of flowering peony and foliage, a perched and a flying bird has inside a wreath the italic initials LVR.


H. 32 cm

 

Note:
Another such a jar with the initials LVR is in the collection of the Groninger Museum. Where the initials stand for

so far is not known. It could be the initials of a name of the owner or it could be an indication of the contents of
the jar (see: Fine & Curious, Japanese Export Porcelain in Dutch Collections, Christiaan Jörg, 2003).
