An exquisitely decorated Nippon porcelain bowl done in a lobed shape with scalloped rim. The bowl is beautifully hand decorated with pink and gold flowers (possibly chrysanthemums)with gold beaded stems and leaves and flourishes of gold scrolls over the green branches and deep claret background. The bowl is in excellent condition, wonderfully translucent, with no chips or cracks, slight wear to the gilding on the rim edge, consistent with age. 8 5/8" in diameter, just under 2" high. The underside of the bowl is decorated with deep pink flowers. Marked on the bottom as shown.
