Wilde About Blue & White

"I find it harder and harder every day to live up to my blue china." Oscar Wilde.
What we have here is a perfect example of a piece of blue china that Oscar Wilde was talking about, a Japanese Arita ware porcelain ginger jar circa 1880. Hand painted with birds and floral decoration, a type of blue & white porcelain that was so fashionable among the aesthetes of London in the 1880s and their rage for all things Japanese. Seven and a half inches tall.
