A small bowl with a soft worn feel with the emperor Guangxu (Kuang-hsu) reign mark, marked in period.

The body of this small averted rim porcelain bowl curves gracefully to a raised footring. The bowl was painted in red and green overglaze enamels and then stenciled with a key fret rim ring band and leaf and vines in black. The four round red painted medallions each have different characters: longevity, ten thousand, many, place. The glaze is soft and velvety. The bowl is not very thinly potted. The foot ring is unglazed but the base is glazed.

A molded raised mark on the bowl base. It has overglaze enamel red marked over the mold mark. The characters are the reign mark of Guang Xu (1871-1908). I can’t read the mold mark.

4 ¼” diameter x 2 ½” tall. Weighs 4.9 oz

The condition is good with no cracks, breaks or rim chips. The bowl rings true. The footring looks chipped from the sagar. The bowl has a few firing specks.

A wonderful small bowl with a connection to the Guangxu emperor.
