Chinese Powder-Blue and Famille Verte Porcelain Bowl

second half 19th century, the slightly flared sides tapering to a raised foot-rim, decorated to the exterior with alternating lappets containing mythical creatures, flowers and birds, below an overpainted powder-blue and gilt border with scrolling floral design, the interior centered with a terraced garden design, the rim encircled with an alternating border of butterflies and floral sprays.
h. 5-3/4", dia. 11-1/2"


The bowl exhibits past professional restoration that includes the rim with overpainting and glazing to the blue and gold, the entire cavetto (interior walls) of the bowl have been overglazed in white, as have parts of the base and foot rim. Due to the extensive overglazing, it is difficult to discern under UV light what was actually repaired. There is some wear/rubbing to the bowl gilding notably around rim where it has been touched up. Both the rim and foot rim exhibit minor "flea-bite" chips and abrading.
