IMPORTANT c1730 CHINESE IMPERIAL YONGZHENG FAMILLE ROSE DUCK LOTUS POND BOWL
rare and highly-important c1730 Chinese Imperial Yongzheng mark & period famille rose “Lotus Pond” or “Duck Pond” decorated porcelain bowl.
This bowl is a truly astonishing example that has a very unique and beautiful period design. The bowl has a beautiful array of flowering lotus blossom designs, along with a great swimming duck figure. It is interesting to note that the lotus designs are very unique. As you can see the period artist has created a beautiful array of lotus blossoms at different stages of blossoming. The decor includes a closed blossom, partially open blossom, newly opened pink blossom, a red & white full blossom, and a prominently white blossom that would be closer to the blossoms end life cycle. The artist appears to do somewhat the same design with the lily pads. This is something very unique and that I have personally never seen on another example. The decor also spreads nicely around the bowl.
The bowl is superbly and thinly potted of highly translucent pure white porcelain.
Size: The bowl is a nice full size example measuring 7 1/4 inches wide, and sits 3 inches tall.
