A hard paste porcelain shallow bowl commonly used for salad with a dentil gilt rim and hand painted with bouquets and sprays of flowers. The simplicity of the painting is not an indication of poor work, there was at times a fashion for simple looking things; think of Marie Antoinette at her dairy at Versailles. This bowl is from the same period. 8 1/4 inch (21 cm) diameter.

Condition: No chips, cracks, hairlines, or repairs. Slight wear to the gilding.

The cheerful flowers and simple shape with regular indentations to the rim make this an attractive bowl.
