Why this is a
Masterpiece

With its faded blue decoration, certainly due to extreme temperature while firing, this is the oldest piece of ceramics within the Ajuda ceramic collections. Although pale blue would generally be regarded as a loss of quality – the vibrant blue colour being one of the criteria by which the oriental ceramics were so appreciated in the West – King Luis I seemed to have disregarded this technical problem and appreciated this piece.

History of the Object
This jar was on display in the smoking room of King Luis I's own private apartments.
