SOLD



SOLD

A gorgeously painted Nanking porcelain punch bowl that is similar in style to the Canton blue and white, with exception to the border trim and underside that is classified as mosquito pattern, the bowls footing is decorated in traditional key fret. A gorgeous orange peel can be observed along with other features such as a minor glaze skip in the well of the bowl, bubble burst scattered in the interior, along with iron spots and a inclusion located to the inside well of the bowl, too difficult to capture all details, but the color of the cobalt is deep blue and sunken in the porcelain to create a textured feel so common on mid to late 18th century Chinese porcelain. Condition is perfect with minor scratches and small imperfections noted. Further no cracks, chips, etc. It measures 13.75" diameter x 6.25 high.
