Although this very good bowl bears a overglaze red Qianlong mark the piece is most probably from the Guangxu period - at least the decoration of the bowl points to it. A perfect potted Famille Rose bowl brightly rich and colourful decorated to the exterior with a scaly five-clawed dragon in pursuit of the flaming pearl, alternating with descending long-tailed phoenix, all amidst meandering leafy scrolls. The iron red dragon further very scilfully decorated with gold. The interior decorated with five bats, a rebus of happiness surrounding a masterly executed central longlivity character ( Shou medallion ) Diameter : 14,1 cm. Condition : Minor ware of the enamels, further in perfect condition.
