This lovely bowl is especially nice for display as the painting is on the outside. Bunches of pink primroses and blue forget-me-nots encircle the entire perimeter and the top edge is trimmed with Roman gold. Illegibly signed on the bottom by the artist.
Measures 8 1/2" at the largest diameter, standing 3" tall and made of the finest European hard paste porcelain. Interior was glazed in iridescent, rainbow-hued luster at the factory and imported for further decoration.
In lovely condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. No paint chipping or wear to the florals or rim gilding but the interior has utensil marks in the form of scratching to the luster glaze; very unobtrusive and hard to capture in a photograph.
Filled with fruit or flowers, this would make a lovely centerpiece for your Springtime table.
