Chinese Porcelain Bowl and Saucer, Ca. 1750

China Ca. 1750

A mid 18th century Chinese porcelain bowl and under plate in under glaze blue with floral and insect poly-chrome decoration. The central floral vignette is outlined with a raised low relief shaped outline. The under plate outside the vignette has raised low relief leafage between the berries, insects and flowers. The bowl does not have the low relief leafage.




Very good. There is professional hair line repair on the under plate which is nearly invisible.


Bowl 2 1/2" high, 4 3/4" diameter. Saucer 4 /5/8" diameter.
