Each of the four round reserves finely painted with flowers and fruits that bloom and bear fruits in each of the four seasons, in famille rose on a sgraffito ruby ground, the inside further elaborately painted with flowers, fruits and auspicious emblems in underglaze blue. The decorations, enamelling and potting of this bowl are extremely fine. This bowl is one of the finest examples of its type.
