A very finely painted Japanese Bowl with a scene of taking tea in a natural setting.

The porcelain bowl has a barbed rim, and has been painted with a scene of the ocean with mountains in the background and a tea ceremony in the foreground. There are delicate colorful Japanese maple leaves surrounding the cavetto. The painting is very minute, particularly the calligraphy on the base and the painting of the robes and gilt ring around the central well. Even the back has delicate floral paintings and reverse paintings of blossoms. The painting has precise shading around the maple leaves.

The bowl has a shallow raised unglazed foot and a glazed base. There is a five-character signature on the base in iron red.

MEASUREMENTS

5 3/8” (13.5 cm) diameter x 1 ¾” (4.4 cm) tall. Weighs 7.7 oz (215 g)

CONDITION

There are no chips, cracks, or breaks. The gilding is in very good shape. There a few kiln flaws, such as pin hole reserves and a few color spots on underside.

A colorful, delicate painting that is amazing. I love the tiny painting of the maple tree branches.
