Kangxi Chinese blue and white porcelain punch bowl, circa 1700. Painted in underglaze cobalt blue, the bowl is decorated on the exterior with alternating panels showing flowering fruit trees and scenes of mountains along the seashore. The bowl has a traditional shape molded in the form of a lotus-flower, with a high side wall and a wavy slightly everted rim creating a deep form supported on a short foot. The bowl is divided into eight panels. The interior features a zigzag border, and at the bottom of the well is painted with a single sprig of peony within a traditional double circle of underglaze blue.
In Chinese, lore mountains were the source of the water that pours through the landscape nourishing the earth and filling the seas.
