Antique Chinese Fluted & Scalloped Deep Bowl circa 1780 in wonderful colors of cobalt - blue, vermilion, red, turquoise,yellow, & soft magenta pink.. Beautiful painting of two men, with great Chinese faces, a fancy dressed woman at window and small child. Lovely paintings of Peonies and Chrysanthemums in the 3 reserves. Looks as if they were just painted today because they are so spontaneously done. The artist painted with a one- bristol brush,it seems!. Lots of gold painting, even on the clothing . The bowl has a border and then drops down into a non-fluted section! It has been restored; please see photos, very secure now. Worth to have had restoration completed ; a valuable item of history.. measures 5 1/2" W. X 1 1/4"H.
