A JAPANESE IMARI BOWL, EARLY 18TH CENTURY.
The bowl is moulded in a form based upon a chrysanthemum flower, the interior with further flowers and brocaded bands, the exterior with simple stems of foliage. Within the foot-rim is a six-character apocryphal Chinese Ming reign mark for Chenghua.
Sotheby's London sold a very similar bowl ( 20.1 cm dia.) in 1990 for GBP 880, how times have changed!
Approximately 17.6 cm diameter, 5.8 cm high. The gilding on the rim is rubbed, otherwise no cracks, chips or restoration.
Please study the photographs.
