4 Pieces of Late 19th Century Chinese Blue and White Rustic Porcelain Bowls
The largest bowl, which measures 6 ¼" x 2 2/8", has a porcelain mark in the form of a single character on the base and a wide rim. The three other bowls, each of which measure roughly 5" diameter x 2" tall, have a character on the side of the bowl, have a character on the side of the bowl, although I don't believe that's a manufacturer's mark. Each of the small bowls have a mark in the bottom of the inside of the bowl, I believe to help the owner identify it as theirs.
The condition of all four is quite good, although there are a few chips and every bowl has kiln flows. One bowl has one rim chip. Another bowl has 2 chips. Several others have chips on the footring. These chips don't detract from the overall visual effect, and in fact reinforce the feeling that these were prized- but well used – possessions of common folk well over a hundred years ago.
These are handmade, deftly painted, and sturdy porcelains with an interesting history, that show off well in the modern home.
