A Blue and White Pair of Nightingale Bird Bottle

Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910)
H: 22cm

SKU: 3166 Category:

This tall necked bottle is covered in a milky white glaze and a mixture of both muted and vivid tones of blue. Two nightingales are shown perched on a budding branch of a plum tree. The composition of this nature scene shows the artisan’s skill as the branches of the plum tree sprawl elegantly up the neck of the bottle, while the two birds are positioned front and centre.
