The artist has chosen a beautiful blank with shell scalloped rim and fluted sides. The artist has applied a sponge gold effect around the rim and solid gold between the shell designs. The gold has taken on a rich copper patina making this an exceptional fine piece to behold. The floral design is hand painted with white flowers done with raised enamel on soft green, blue wispy stems. The white flowers have a hint of pink and blue within the white and have bright yellow and brown centers done in raised enamel. The outer portion of the bowl has been decorated with the same beautiful floral motif and a gold ring is painted around the ¼" rimmed base. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc. There are a couple of rubs on the high points but it definitely does not take away from the beauty of this wonderful piece.
