Famille Rose Bowl With Fitted, Carved Wooden Pedestal
Description and Item Information
Up for sale is this beautifully detailed, Chinese Famille Rose porcelain bowl. Please excuse the glare in the photos. This is the second of two bowls with fitted stands that I am selling; this and the other pieces of Chinese porcelain I am selling are from a diverse estate collection. The lush decoration is in raised enamels. The exterior has colorful flowers, leaves, and insects. The interior has flowers and foliage against a white background. Around the foot is a decorated band. This bowl rests atop a fine, carved wooden stand which is fitted to the shape of the bowl's foot. The bowl fits in the stand in one orientation only, so it seems clear that the stand was custom made for the bowl. While the stand is old, the porcelain bowl may pre-date it. The bowl measures approximately 10 3/8 inches by 7 inches by 4 inches. The stand measures approximately 9 inches by 6 1/8 inches by 1 7/8 inches. Resting atop the stand, the bowl is 5 3/4 inches tall. Unpacked, these pieces together weigh over 2 1/2 pounds. This would be a lovely addition to a collection of Asian decorative arts. I have more Chinese porcelain on eBay this week; please view my other listings.
