Large Antique Chinese Export Porcelain Punch Bowl, Ca. 1840
China Ca. 1840
A very fine quality Rose Canton/Rose Medallion large punch bowl, fully decorated inside and out. The enamel painting is superior to most Rose Medallion porcelain and is well delineated with strong bright colors plus lots of gold. Half the main panels show scenes of Mandarin domestic life surrounded with blue to aqua dragons. The other half of the panels are painted with multiple types of flowers, birds and butterflies edged with bats and fruit.
Excellent antique condition. Light rubbing of the gold mostly on the edge of the rim. No repair.
6 3/4" H, 16" Diameter
