clobbered Amsterdams Bont Chinese export bowl Qianlong

clobbered Amsterdams Bont Chinese export bowl Qianlong

Description

A Chinese export bowl, decorated in underglaze blue, and dating from the Qianlong period.  The bowl has been over-decorated in Holland in the Eighteenth Century with baskets of flowers, pavilions and men fishing from a boat in a lake. The inside of the bowl is decorated with a central basket of flowers and with bees, and with a decorative border and swags around the rim. Diameter 14.8cm (5.8"), height 6.5cm (2.6")

Date
Qianlong c 1740-1760
 

Condition
There is one hairline crack extending from the rim.  It would appear that this happened during the Eighteenth Century (perhaps during transit from China to Europe) as the decoration inside the bowl is designed to hide this hairline, being painted along the length of the crack - see image where this is pointed out. No other damage or restoration. As can be seen, the enamels on the outside of the bowl are in very good condition with only rubbing and loss to the gilding. The enamels in the interior are also in good condition, with some rubbing from use.
