This wonderful hand-painted and hand-thrown bowl has a very pretty blue and white willow pattern of a village on the water with pagodas, boats, trees and a mountain painted in underglaze blue on bluish-tinged white porcelain. The central panel has borders around the rim in various designs. The design is very similar to the famous willow ware and blue willow designs produced by many English porcelain companies, but this plate was produced in China during the 18th or 19th Century.
**Please note that this bowl is one of several pieces we are offering that were probably part of the same set. Because each piece has a slightly different painting (since they were hand painted), we are offering each dish separately. We are willing to offer a discount for purchasing multiple pieces, however.**
There is no design on the back. The shallow foot ring is unglazed and the base is glazed. There are no porcelain marks.
The bowl measures 8 1/4" diameter and is 1 1/2" tall.
Conditions: The condition is good for such an old piece. Small rim chips that are not noticeable. There is one short hairline crack.
A great old piece that would be a great addition to your Chinese export porcelain collection.
