Japanese Nippon Berry Serving Bowl 10” w Reticulated Insert Hand Painted Cherry Blossoms c 1900 - image 1 of 9

080914-3/RL-681

This is a beautiful and unusual Japanese hard paste porcelain serving bowl for berries with a reticulated insert that allows the berries to drain. The Nippon area with respect to marks imported into the United States is 1891 to 1921. This bowl is circa 1900.

The bowl sits on a large round foot. The bowl is shallow and wide, 2 ½” high and 10” wide.

The reticulated insert sits in the middle of the bowl over a well that allows liquid from the fruit to drain into the well without getting the berries or other fruit all mushy.

The hand painting is beautiful, large pink and white cherry blossoms with yellow, brown and green middle, nestled among green and gray leaves. There is gleaming gold trim around the rim, edged in red, and more gold trim on the edge of the insert, around the well, and around the base of the foot.

The Nippon is the Wreath with a M inside, with Hand Painted above and Nippon below. This is an authentic Nippon mark. The M is the import/export mark for the company that imported the bowl into the United States.

There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing, and very little wear to the gold trim
