Lovely and graceful bowl has so much appeal. The shape is fabulous. Almost like a free form leaf.
Not only does the scalloped edge go all around the bowl but the diagonally shaped ribs formed at the edge go from the edge way down into the bottom of the bowl, only ending at the smaller floral design. The texture is superb.
These may be lilacs, I’m not sure. In any case they are delightful two toned purple flowers having yellow centers with green and tan leaves. If you turn the bowl under some light, you can see outlines of applied gold on the flowers as well as the leaves.
A graceful stem trimmed in gold completes this bowl. This bowl has a vey light glaze, practically matte.
Condition is A1. No scratches or chips. The only wear at all is to some of the gilding.
Measures a generous 8 5/8” L x 5” W x 1.75”H.
This is an old dish. You can tell by both the look and the feel. Probably dates from the early 1900’s to 1930’s. Bottom is marked G687.
