Tea bowl

The tea bowl is complete; some breaks have been repaired with glue and repainted. It is circular in shape. In profile, the bowl has a slightly flared wall topped by a corrugated rim. The lower part of the wall is curved towards the bottom, which is flat. The bowl rests on a solid ring-shaped foot. The outer rim of the foot is beveled and free of glaze; the decoration is molded and hand-painted in polychrome enamels of pink, orange, green, violet and black. The molded decoration is visible on the top of the rim and on the wall: the top is wavy and trimmed with small spikes, which extend into a domed rib on the wall. The painted decoration is floral, in the Famille rose style. The decoration is painted under the inner rim and base, and on the outer wall. Under the inner rim, it consists of a narrow braid outlined in black and trimmed with a row of overlapping scrolls painted purple. A small leafy stem is painted pink in the center of the background. The decoration on the wall consists of two motifs that are repeated on the opposite wall. The main decoration is composed of two types of superimposed medallions, fan-shaped and oval, with black scrolls and purple garlands. Each features small flowers in pink and violet, surrounded by leaves painted green and outlined in black. The small oval medallion is surrounded by latticework in orange, pearl violet and pearl violet on a pink background, bordered by scrolls in black. The other medallion rests on a latticework in violet on a pink background.
