A wonderful Bow porcelain factory tea bowl painted in the "Jumping Boy" pattern. Although this pattern is occasionally found on Chaffers porcelain, and is not common, it appears to occur even much less frequently on Bow porcelain pieces. The potting is extremely thin and light. The painting, done in shades of dark and lighter blues, is extremely well done, and features a seated Oriental woman holding a sprig of flowers. To her left is the jumping boy, suspended in mid-air with a Chinese emblem and a rock or mountain range to his left. The interior is fully decorated and features 4 Chinese symbols. This piece was part of the Billie Pain collection and, as such, bears a label to that effect.

The condition is excellent except for a tiny chip on the footrim, barely visible from the exterior. The height is 1 5/8" and the top diameter is 2 3/4".
