Re: Re: Re: Age of Bowl

FYI, here's a famille rose bowl of quatrefoil lobed sections, decorated on the exterior with four butterflies and various flower sprays. The interior is decorated with four butterflies interspersed with flower sprays, around a central cartouche featuring Xi Wangmu, Queen mother of the west, her celestial palace and two other female immortals on a raging sea, surrounded by flying bats and a crane. The dish is approximately 11 1/8” (28.5 cm) long, 8 7/8” (22.5 cm) wide and 3 1/8” (8 cm) high. The base has a six character minyao seal mark of the Jiaqing reign, painted in over-glaze iron red enamel, on a turquoise ground. The dish is mark and period of the Jiaqing reign (1796-1820). The condition is very good, one small chip on one side rim with a short hairline emanating from the chip (see photos) – No other cracks, chips or restoration.

If anyone doesn't believe the mark, maybe they'll believe the decoration. This kind of paint job ranks with the best of Chinese export.

Best regards,

Bill H.
