19c Antique Qing Chinese Flambe Pottery Porcelain Brush Washer Form Dish Bowl For Sale
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.
