Antique Cobalt Blue Chinese Peking Glass Bowl
Sale Pending

Vibrant translucent deep blue colored Chinese Peking (Beijing) glass bowl with scalloped rim and body. Qing dynasty, late 19th/early 20th century. The thin glass contains tiny air bubbles which are characteristic of glass from this period. The word “CHINA” is etched onto the bottom, indicating an export date after 1890 when it was required to mark the country of origin on any items exported into the United States. Because the bowl is simply marked CHINA, it can be determined that it was exported between 1890 and 1914, at which time the words “made in” were added to the country of origin designation.

CONDITION is excellent, with no chips, cracks or restoration.

DIMENSIONS: 5 ½” (14 cm) diameter at the top, 2” (5 cm) high.
