Nippon centerpiece bowl features hand painted grapes and ornate raised gold, moriage beading on the border. The grapes and leaf decoration are expertly painted in soft lavender, green, and yellow colors. The raised gold border and jeweled dots are hand applied. The ground is a soft minty green and the bowl is footed, made of pure white porcelain. The bowl sits on a pedestal and has short a bulbous shape making this a beautiful table centerpiece. It would be perfect to use as a fruit bowl or as display. The bowl measures 2.50 inches tall by 8.75 inches across the top. The gold rim has a minimal amount of rubbing and there is a teeny nick on the rim. The lovely gold decoration retains its beautiful rich finish.
