Rare 1840's Chinese Rose Mandarin/Medallion Bowl-Persian Import -Arabic Script. Fantastic multi color painting and gold gilt.
Fine ornate detail in the painting, which has survived in excellent condition, all the way down to the gold in the woman's hair and rim. Their are four panels on the outside, two depicting a courtyard scene with four women and one man.
The other shows two birds and flowers. A butterfly is between each panel. Two Floral bands decorate the inside and at the bottom are two ducks in a pond. The underside bottom has Arabic writing that I have been unable to translate. I suspect it says "China" or possibly the year of creation.It has two very tight hairlines, with one being nearly insignificant. The glaze is excellent and shows only small amounts of paint/gold gilt loss.
It measure exactly 8" in diameter and stands 3 1/2" tall. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian Antiques\China\Bowls". The seller is "micre-8291" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
