An exquisite Chinese polychrome porcelain hunt bowl painted in Famille Rose over-glaze enamels. The strong color palette and rich decoration are hallmarks of Chinese export hunt bowls of the 18th century. The shape of the bowl is traditional: raised on a short foot with steep sides.
Made in the Qianlong period, circa 1770, the bowl is hand-painted showing Western figures riding to the hunt in a lush green landscape. There are two main scenes painted around the bowl: “The Meet”, which shows the assembly of the riders, and “Full Cry”, which shows the riders at full gallop in pursuit of the fox. In the well of the bowl we see the huntsman “Walking Hounds”. He is walking out the pack of hounds on a day when they don’t go hunting.
This bowl is both beautiful and charming.
H 4.75 in. x Dm 11 in.
