Blue-white porcelain. China, Qing Dynasty, 19th cent.
In best preservation, a very rare oval basket vessel with high sides, which are consistently open-worked all around, bestowing this porcelain a delicate appearance! Except for the circulating border, there is only painting inside the bowl – it shows mountains, lake, temple and other buildings on islands, as well as fishing boat and bridge. The blue cobalt color is deep and effectively applied.
