This beautiful piece features pink roses with leaves forming squares at the rim and a bouquet in the bottom. This bowl has exceptional, heavy gold decoration and beading, including scrolls, curlicues and geometric designs punctuated with gold beading. Bands around the rim and bottom of the design each have two rows of beading. There are decorative gold swags around the bottom edge of the decoration inside, and the three ball feet are partially gilt. The decorations are all hand painted.
