Offered is an antique porcelain bowl or dish, early 20th. c. in moriage on tripod legs- hand painted in no less than six colors- a famille rose, colored court scene, it has a decorative ruffled edge with figures of court geishas or ladies in formal attire.
The bowl stands on three tripod legs and measures seven and a half inches round and stands three and a half inches high. I date this piece very early, before nineteen twenty nine as after that date items had to be marked by law “Made in Japan”. The fact it is unsigned or unmarked is typical and not uncommon to this period before 1929 circa 1900-1915.
This is an exceptional example with experienced painting displaying the moriage technique of raised painting using vibrant colored dots. I think this should thrill anyone who loves oriental porcelain or china.
Size- 7.5 inches diameter by 2.25 inches high
Condition- Excellent, I've looked thoroughly under a jeweler's loop and can see no problems whatsoever despite the intricacy of the work.
There is absolutely no evidence of nicks, chips, hairlines, etc. The pictures are busy and can be deceptive. I’ve thoroughly vetted this by hand and it is perfect.
