This beautiful Chinese enameled porcelain
bowl,surrounded by alternating designs of vibrant lotus sprays each seperated by the 'shou'character meaning long life&set between two beautiful underglaze blue borders.The bottom of the bowl shows a colorful medallion of two lotus flower sprays,the 'shou'character,meaning long life and the auspicious symbols of a double gold coin,meaning prosperity and continued wealth.
The base bears the seal of Qianlong which I feel is spurious and should be 19thC.
Condition:Excellent. Circa:Qing Dynasty 1825-1850. Size: Dia.4 3/4"x 1 1/8"high. This small,shallow enameled porcelain bowl is beautifully done in every respect and deserves your serious consideration.
