This gorgeous bowl is 16 3/8" across, the edge stands 2 1/2" above a table top, and it is heavy. This could hold a pile of fruit, but it is really much too beautiful to cover it up. In the center circle is a Bonsai tree in a bowl and on the sides are patterns of Chrysanthemums and water lilies. The bright colors are reds and blue with gold highlights. Three pair of small birds are tucked into the plants. This could be placed on a stand or in the center of a large table and enjoyed. I have a wide selection of Asian art listed here, and will combine orders for discount and shipping savings.
