Exceptional Peking glass bowl. Also known as Qianlong glass or overlay carved glass, the bowl is opaque white with bright green carved flowers. It has a large carved lotus on the front with cherry blossoms encircling the bowl amid flowing, leafy stems. The lotus blossom implies harmony, while the cherry blossoms signify love, femininity, and power. The bowl measures 6" in diameter and stands 2 1/2" tall. The base foot is 2 3/4" in diameter. It is in excellent condition with no damage or losses. The process of producing Peking glass was very labor intensive and all done by hand. This piece is a stunning example of that art form.
