Lot 1345. A rare blue and white 'Mandarin duck' ewer, 17th century; 7 ¾ in. (19.7 cm.) highEstimate USD 10,000 - USD 15,000© Christie's Images Ltd 2018

The ewer is made in the shape of two side-by side mandarin ducks, one with head curved back behind one end of the spotted handle to rest behind the raised neck of its mate. Their necks, wings and tails are detailed with feathers, and the sides of their bodies are delicately decorated with lotus plants and water weeds as if they are swimming in a lotus pond above a scroll band encircling the foot, Japanese double wood box.
