Large Chinese Export Porcelain Qianlong Bowl, mid 18th C
click for detailed views



A fine and rare Qianlong period porcelain bowl decorated with a rich blue glaze accentuated with gold highlights. Featuring two different scenes of people in a landscape setting, the transparent enamel glazes feel smooth as silk. The bowl was repaired in the 1800's with 3 metal staples and there are 2 rim chips at the break. The repair is excellent, the bowl is solid, and it still retains a nice ring when tapped. Measures 9.5" diameter x 4" high. Circa 1780. Note: I was having trouble with reflections when photographing this bowl, please ask questions or request more photos if needed.
