RARE EARLY BOW PORCELAIN FAMILLE ROSE LARGE PUNCH BOWL
England, c1753

 

Early Bow Porcelain Famille Rose Large Punch Bowl, c1753

 

 

A somewhat rare large bowl for this period and style of painting, enamels in the famille rose palette
with large pink peony blooms and blue chrysanthemum before mauve hollow rockwork,
the interior with a border of hatched green diapering alternating with semi-flowerhead reserves;
raised on a high footrim

  

Note :

 

A similarly decorated oval footed sauceboat is illustrated Bow Porcelain, Gabszewicz & Freeman, p. 35, Pl, 25.

 

"Famille rose" enamels were “especially favored for teawares and surprisingly large number of the characteristically small cups from these services survive. The stylized peonies, foliage and rockwork comprise a decorative resource which can, so to speak, be expanded to fill the space available... Famille rose was rather less commonly used on flatwares, probably because the expansive qualities of the design consumed a good deal of pigment.  It was sometimes used for miniatures... The famille rose decoration seems to have been used throughout the 1750’s but gradually gave way to European-style flower painting.”

Bow Porcelain, Adams & Redstone, p. 116.

 

Condition :

Excellent for age, with some wear and speckling to the interior, a few areas of glass loss to the white rim,

all very characteristic of early Bow; a small restored chip to the inside of the rim.

(This bowl appeared to have rim staining upon arrival. We requested that it be steamed by our restorers,

and were pleasingly surprised to see the light stains were superficial and disappeared.)

 

8.75” Diameter
