Beautifully painted Chinese lotus vine scroll pattern rice bowl and matching saucer/serving dish. This pattern originates from the Chien Leung era of the 18th century and became popularly revived in the porcelain factories of central China from the late 1900’s through the Communist era. The mark on the base indicates that this set was produced in the Jiang Xu province where the original Imperial kilns and porcelain itself was first developed. The marking dates it to circa 1949. The decoration is auspicious for its owner with painted lotus blossoms (wisdom), long life calligraphy in the form of a butterfly, and bats (Chinese for bat, fu, is the same as good fortune!) The bowl is 5 3/8” diameter and 4” ht. with lid. The plate is 5 ¾” diameter and 1”high.
