ASTONISHING CHINESE QIANLONG FAMILLE ROSE IMPERIAL HUNTING PUNCH BOWL
a truly exceptional c1780 Chinese Qianlong famille rose large punch bowl. This punch bowl is a truly astonishing example that I believe is an exceptionally rare find. The punch bowl is superbly painted both inside and out. I have seen and sold several dozen punch bowls over the decades and I have never seen one with both the exterior and interior with full landscape scenes like this. The exterior of the bowl is superbly decorated with large imperial hunting scene. The exterior is just as nicely decorated with an amazing European subject hunting scene with several dogs and hunters on horseback running and galloping around the interior. The punch bowl is a large size measuring 14 1/4 inches wide, by 6 inches tall.
