Rare Scene Qianlong Period 16″ Punch Bowl #7044 SOLD
A fine Chinese export porcelain punch bowl of impressive 16″ size and decorated in famille rose enamels with a rather unusual scene depicting a person of high rank, perhaps the Emperor, seated beneath a canopy, in a boat-shaped wagon with a dragon’s head prow, being drawn by attendants and accompanied by a mounted guard, all within a picturesque landscape-perhaps a great celebration such a Chinese New Year? An iron red enameled landscape centering the interior bottom of the piece. Three rim lines sealed, otherwise good condition. Circa 1750.
