Just a little gem, this fine 6 1/4″ bowl was just meant to be held and appreciated for its rich glaze and beautifully painted panels of floral decoration rendered in vibrant underglaze cobalt blue. Of molded form with each panel representing alternating images of lotus and peony. The reverse with a nice six-character mark within a double-ring circle. Small chip to the foot-rim a very few, very minute, rim frits, otherwise in very good condition. Kangxi period, circa 1690.
