Here is a splendid bowl with confident and bright decoration in the Chinoiseries style, made in the city of Liverpool about 250 years ago. It shows a Chinese (as interpreted in England) landscape of a garden with a bridge, trees and fences, with craggy rocks and mountains in the distance. The reverse has a painting of two mountains. Phillip Christian was one of the few makers of porcelain in Liverpool in the eighteenth century. He created pieces with both printed and hand-painted decoration, almost always in blue. This exciting bowl is eight and a half inches across at the top and three and three-quarters inches high. It is an outstanding example in wonderful condition, with no chips or cracks and only minor surface wear on the inside from usage at the festive table. It displays wonderfully and will look great on your shelf.
