19c Antique Qing Chinese Flambe Pottery Porcelain Brush Washer Form Dish Bowl :
Dear All After the second sale of this fine bowl to chinese buyers who have not honoured the sale, communicated , or paid . I am re-listing this beautifull item excluding china buyers. This is a real shame but I have had enough! so grab yourself a bargain with half the competition excluded! Here we have a excellent mid 19th century flambe glazed chinese bowl. The large bowl is very elegant and is based on the form of a brush washer. I have shown this to Christies who have confirmed that it is 19th century and may possibly been used as a large brush washer on a scholars table. The thick electric blue glaze is very vibrant and a beautiful colour. The piece is in good condition. You will see from the pictures that the glaze in the bowl of the dish apaears crackled / broken. This seems to be part of the manufacture, but maybe the iron / copper in the glaze has oxidised in some way. It is smooth to the touch and is under the glaze . The base shows the correct signs of age. There is a area on the foot that looks like a small chip firing crack. It does not come through to the other side and was also probably done in manufacture. The bowl measures 25cm diameter x 5cm high. The piece is very heavy so i apolagise for the high international shipping costs Good luck & please please please dont participate unless you intend to honour your offer and go through with the sale. Sorry I have to write this but my last couple of experiences have really let down the rest of the honest comunity. Thanks for looking.
