A brilliantly enameled Chinese export eggshell porcelain Famille Rose tea bowl and saucer hand-painted with an exuberant bouquet of flowers overwhelming a small blue footed vase, edged with a pink diapered border with small floral reserves, the vase centering the tea bowl as well, flanked by the large blooms spilling out and around the bowl. The design most likely taken from the profuse Dutch still lifes of the late 17th century. The saucer measuring 4 1/2″ in diameter, the tea bowl 3″ in diameter, very minute rim frits filled, otherwise both in very good condition. Yongzheng period, circa 1730. $2800.
