Clobbered Tea BowlClobbered Tea BowlClobbered Tea Bowl

Although this piece may look flat in the picture, it is actually a small bowl. The diameter is 5.5 inches and the top is 1.25 inches above the table. The term "clobbered" arose in Europe in the late 18th or early 19th century. Chinese blue and white porcelain was losing its popularity and the public wanted something more colorful in their porcelain. It was learned (probably in Holland originally) that blue and white porcelain could be painted over and put in the kiln again to produce essentially a new and more colorful piece. Sometime enameling was used. The piece is quite nice but it does have a tight hairline shown in the last picture.
