20th c Chinese Porcelain Rice Bowl
A very fine porcelain gilded at the rim of the mouth and around the foot. It has been skillfully decorated with a floral motif alternating with hand painted Chinese characters encircled in a scrolling design. The recessed foot has a rim that is not glazed. "Made in China" is painted on the base in English and Chinese characters.
There is no damage. Very minor loss of gold around the foot and an iron spot below the upper rim and inside bowl. Minor loss to decoration as well. Very good condition for age. The bowl has a 4.5 inch diameter.
