Chinese Famille Verte Porcelain Bowl

Kangxi period, AD 1662-1722


Beautifully decorated on the lower section with flowerheads and tendrils set against a yellow ground; the upper section, with similar trefoil arabesque like reserves against a green ground with additional flowers and tendrils between them.  All painted in vibrant deep enamels, the style clearly based upon Middle Eastern designs.
Diameter: 8 ½ inches (21.7 cm.)
Plates with this type of decoration are known as well as related garlic neck vases- all presumably made for the Middle Eastern market. However, they are also found in European collections where they were equally prized for their vibrant decoration and exoticness.
