Very unusual early 19th century Japanese cloisonne Buddhist alms bowl. Simple elegant shape, unusual use of cloisonne technique on both inside and outside. Inside is decorated with images of 5 children’s toys (a drum, a mouse with a push rod, a spin top, a balancing scarecrow, and a cloth Daruma doll) among scattered flowers on black background with stylized clouds. Outside has 4 different flower roundels alternating with butterflies. The bowl has superb presence, very strong design, beautiful matte finish to the surface. Great piece in excellent condition. Diameter 4 7/8 inches, height 2 inches.
