Beautiful Chinese bowl with classic Chinese motifs of dragons chasing the pearl of wisdom in the clouds.

The classically-shaped bowl is thinly potted with slight faring mouth. The body is full rounded, and tapering to a footring. The designs of dragons, clouds and pearls of wisdom over waves are painted with a very well executed reserve technique. The plum color glaze is very controlled and has a textured feel. The base is glazed in a white glaze with iron red character marks. The unglazed foot ring is smooth. The white inner glaze is a nice thick, smooth, glossy white.

There are 7 characters on the base in iron red. They are faint.

6” diameter x 2 ½” tall. Weighs 9.2 oz

There is one small rim chip (see the photo taken from the underside, where it is more pronounced than from the top). There are a couple of glaze imperfections, like bubbles on the bottom inside of the bowl. There are a couple of glaze imperfections on the base. The bowl is otherwise very well made and perfect. The bowl rings true.

A beautiful classic Chinese bowl from an old estate.
