This is finely painted, Chinese porcelain bowl or dish. Glazed in a warm "cafe au lait" color, the smooth pottery body is hand painted with insects and flowers in beautiful detail. Fantastically painted dish. A beautiful old bowl with the Daoguang period (1821-50) Peach Mark sometimes called the "Peach and Bat" mark. It is rather an unusual shape and measures 8 1/4" (longest side) by 5" w by 2 1/2" tall. Condition is excellent for it's age with a crack ( as shown in photos of inside and out) Price reflects this unfortunate flaw! This is a great cabinet piece.
