For sale is a very nice piece of Old Paris porcelain in dark pink on a white background with gold highlights. Each side panel of this monumental bowl has very fine Cartouche paintings of egrets. The bowl measures 20" long x 10" wide x 7" high. The gold gilding has worn off considerably and there are several areas of damage. I have tried to get photographs of the damage. One area of damage is on the top rim, there is an old crack about ½" long. Another area is underneath, on one of the legs, there is an old repair. The last area of damage is of the side feet, both feet have a small chip missing.
Old Paris porcelain was a favorite of antebellum Southern homes and this particular center bowl was acquired from an estate in Albemarle County, VA.
