An antique porcelain center bowl featuring hand painted Spring flowers and leaves against a light yellow and blue background. The rim and handles are detailed with a thick band of gold.
The hallmarks are a Vienna Austria mark and Hand Painted Vienna China mark helping us date this to the turn of the 20th Century. We also see the artist signature on front telling us that this was professionally painted by a studio artist.
This beautiful bowl measures 10 3/4 inches handle to handle and 9 inches wide. Except for a tiny bit of gold wear we found no damage. Most likely this piece was used for display only.
