London decorated Chinese export bowl from the Kangxi period

London decorated Chinese export bowl from the Kangxi period

Description

A Chinese export bowl, decorated in underglaze blue with flower sprays and with panels of diaper patter around the rim, and dating from the Kangxi period. The bowl has been over-decorated, probably in London, with iron red enamels and gilding in Imari style with ‘Chinese sentries’ and pavillions. The inside of the bowl has been decorated in the centre with a plant with three flowers, and around the rim with curtain-like swags and tassles. Diameter 14.4cm (5.7”)

Dating:

Porcelain Kangxi period, decoration c1720-1740

Condition:
The bowl has one tight sealed hairline from the rim, indicated in the pictures which is virtually invisible from the outside of the bowl, a small restored rim chip, and two small glaze chips to the foot. There is one small area near the rim from which the glaze has come away exposing the porcelain body. As can be appreciated from the pictures, the enamels on the outside of the bowl and in very good condition.
