Large Antique Chinese Porcelain Bowl Famille Rose Made circa 1860
This lovely mid 19th century Famille Rose bowl was painted in shades of purple, orange, and green. The outside of the bowl features a band of purple diamond pattern with inset panels of blooming peonies and smaller panels with monochrome orange landscapes. Below the purple band we see butterflies and sprigs of flowers. Inside the bowl a larger sprig of blooming peonies sits in the well. In Chinese tradition, peonies are known as the king of flowers and symbolize royalty and wealth.
