Chinese Imari barbers bowl

August 28, 2019 1:24 pm Published by

A good Chinese Imari porcelain barbers bowl, c. 1730. Well painted to the centre, with a typical garden scene of flowering plants amongst rockwork, and a fence, in underglaze blue, iron red and gilding. The rim with a continuous band of scrolls, within a gilt line, and having an indentation for the neck.
The footrim unglazed, and pierced for suspension.
This is an exceptional example of a barbers bowl, in that the condition is remarkably fine. No restoration and minimal wear to the gilding.
