The body of the tankard is decorated with two narrow bands of gilded abstract vegetal ornament around the neck and base, separated by a wider band that features three repoussé medallions alternating with three bosses. Each medallion depicts a standing nude female: one of the nudes appears in an interior holding a dagger to her chest; another holds a sword and a man's head and stands beside a female companion; the third holds an elongated arrow with a blindfolded cupid at her feet. The cast handle consists of a clawed bird's foot grasping a ball at the base, followed by a satyr mask, a bound female nude, and, surmounting the handle, the bust of a warrior. The lid, a later addition, bears a wreath with a series of initials and the date 1639.

A medium size, well potted jar with round shoulder and shorter neck. Inside is not totally glazed. On the body, pine, bamboo, and plum trees are finely painted with blue underglaze. Then a translucent glaze is applied, which turns into milky, white color. It has three floral decorations on the shoulder; the decoration is originated in functional elements of “ears” to which ropes were tied for transportation. The neck has a band of double lines and spray design of peony flowers and leaves. The rim of the neck is unglazed. The foot is unglazed; eye is glazed. Some imperfections of glaze are seen toward the bottom. Glaze is scraped off on one part. Many speckles on the surface.

Footed deep bowl
1615 – 1867
Bequest of Margaret Watson Parker
1954/1.547
This bowl was modeled on a Chinese vessel of the late 16th century. Below the foliate rim there are six panels with horses in reseve against a background of waves and clouds. Following the system used on Chinese vessels the horses facing different directions are placed in alternation around the bowl. Small tassels hang from the center of each panel, but otherwise the middle zone of the exterior is free of decoration. Overlapping petals are found just above the foot. The internal decoration consists of a floral spray in the foot and eight half-medallions on the rim separated by eight tassels hanging from the rim. <br /><br />
