Measuring approximately 8.5-inches in diameter, on offer is a magnificent hand-painted antique Chinese serving bowl. Probably dating from the early-to-mid 1800s, I believe the piece is Qing Dynasty.
With underglaze blue & white motifs, a dragon appears at the bottom interior of the bowl. Circling the outside of the bowl is a variety of animals, including a dragon, horses, a crab, a rabbit, etc. The animals are set against a background of what appears to be a powerful body of water, such as the ocean.
Footed bottom rim, with maker's mark(s) appearing on the underside. In exceptional condition, t are no cracks, chips, or crazing. The piece displays beautifully. From a fine old Estate, provenance will be provided to the winning bidder. .
