CLICK PICTURESTO ENLARGE (you can thenuse provided controls to adjust size)
Offered with andstarting atour usual low price is this beautifully decorated bowl & stand (probably a rice bowl - as it is larger than the usual tea bowl size). It isChinese in origin and marked with the Guangxu period mark (1875-1908) and judging from the excellent decoration and commensurate wear to the rim gilt, Ithink it is probablymark and period.
The pieces aresuperbly decorated in fine matchingdetail with iron red and gilt dragons (one chasing the other) and other colourfulenamels (I believe thistype of decoration isreferred to as 'Wucai' decoration).
SIZE - Pictures are MAGNIFIED to show detail, so please judge sizeby measurements as this may look larger than it actually isThe bowl measures approximately4 1/4 inches (10.8cms)in diameter at the rim x2 1/2 inches (6.4cms)in height. The stand is alsoapproximately 4 1/4 inches (10.8cms)in diameter and is 1 1/8 inches (2.8cms)in height.
CONDITION IS NOT PERFECT, but it displays well as can be seen by the pictures (SEE LAST4 PICTURESFOR MAINFLAWS):-
The bowl has 1 light crack, 1 small rim chip, acouple oftinyrim frits and wear to the rim gilt. The stand has a fair sized chip to the back of the rim (this does show on the top side, but nowhere nearas large. There is one other very small frit on the rim and there is wear to the gilt on the rim in the centre and on the outer edge.
From manufacture is a smudge of gilt on the inside edge of the bowl rim (see picture).
