Large Antique Chinese Famille Noire Goldfish Bowl Planter With Lotus Pond and Birds, Republic Period (Pair Available)
Note the exaggerated eyes on the dragonflies and goldfish - typical of the period. Thick, colorful enamels represent the highest quality painting again typical of the period.
The white interior is painted with four oversized traditional gold fish amongst green pond weed.
Early 20th Century, Republic Period. This is a heavy piece.
Condition is very good with some minor areas of glaze crackle on the inside.
