A classic example of some of the masterful decoration so typical of the Yongzheng period, this very finely eggshell tea bowl and saucer are painstakingly hand-painted in Famille Rose enamels with a highly elaborate design centered with a vase of peonies surrounded by a finely rendered diapered ground with reserves of stylized peony, the motifs continued around the borders, all with gilded highlights. A treasure that fits in the palm of your hand, the measuring 4 1/2″ in diameter, the tea bowl 2 3/4″. The saucer professionally restored, the tea bowl in fine condition. Circa 1730. Ex-Nelson Kline collection.
