This porcelain bowl was produced in Paris, France by Bourdois & Bloch in the 1880s. The diameter of the bowl is 9 inches and it is 3 inches high. The porcelain blank is reticulated, has three lion's paws for feet and the bowl has decorations molded into the porcelain. There is quite a lot of detail in just the porcelain itself. The decoration is exquisite. There are cartouches of flowers in five areas inside the bowl. The center has two large sprays of hand painted flowers. They are delicately painted and full of bright colors. The molded decorations in the porcelain are accented with intricate gilding. Much raised gold is used. Even the lattice work is painted with flowers.
Condition: There are a couple of spots on the rim of the bowl that have some gold wear. There are no other defects.
