A Baragon Tumed Type Bowl.Decorated in bright tones of famille rose on the exterior with seven leaf-shaped reserves alternately decorated with Buddhist figures and auspicious animals or objects and supported on a blossom floating on a band of waves,between borders of Shou characters and Buddhist emblems,with a stylized lotus and double vajra design in the center of the interior.
A similar bowl is illustrated by S.Jenyns,Later Chinese Porcelain,London,1951,pl CXII(1),where the author describes the mark as being in Mongolian script,and reading "Baragon Tumed",identifying it as "part of a service made for a daughter of Daoguang Emperor who married a Mongolian prince of the Tumed banner".The author further notes,p.72,that the set was made at the imperial factories to celebrate the marriage.
The Baragon Tumed mark to the base is,according to Gerald Davison in The Handbook of Marks on Chinese Ceremics,the "Mark of the west wing of the Tumed Mongolian Banner (applide to a service made to commemorate the marriage of one of the Daoguang Emperor's daughters to a southern Mongolian prince.)
