Chinese Doucai enameled bowl - Qing porcelain
This is a great example of an enamel on porcelain doucai bowl from the Qianlong period 1736-1795. There is a flying bird over a grouping of flowers, including lotus flowers. Interestingly enough, there is a grasshopper on the lower right side standing on top of a leaf. The border below the rim is a beautiful tourquoise green. All of the colors are vivid, however, there is much chiping of the enamel. The foot is .75'' deep and shows much age on the underside. Around the base is enameling in a wave motif, all enameling is intack. The mark is illegible. Underside of the dish are markings in red. A fun scene of insects and flowers on milky white Chinese porcelain. Condition: fair; Circa: 18th century; Heigth: 1.5''; Width: 7.75''
