Seller: joepope67 (781) 100%, Location: Leyland, Ships to: Europe, Asia, US, CA, AU, Item: 303509504038 This is a VERY rare and unusual enamel painted bowl which has little or no sign of real damage. This painted enamel on a copper or bronze Metal bowl is very rare and was only manufacturable by the most skilled artists of the period - probably 17th or 18th Century in my opinion but quite possibly Ming era, also. Possibly an Ink Bowl. Dimensions; 2cm tall x 9.4cm wide. The bowl is highly decorative and rare. This piece is from my own collection which I built around ten years + ago but I've decided it's time to let some of my better pieces go to someone who will love them as much as I have. On the back there is some minor impact/stress cracking in the enamel and less shown on the front but I'm only mentioning it for accuracy (As shown). As you can see it's a brilliantly unique, old and a precious collectible that has stood the test of time pretty well. This is a Truly Beautiful item, the likes of which rarely comes up for sale in my opinion, painted with a turquoise ground or with/in an early 'Famille Verte' Palette. INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE STATED ON THE LISTING WILL BE CHARGED INITIALLY BUT ANYTHING SUBSTANTIALLY ABOVE WILL BE REQUESTED AND ANYTHING SUBSTANTIALLY BELOW WILL HAPPILY BE REFUNDED.

As you can see it's a brilliant old and rare collectible that has stood the test of time very well. It still looks very nice.
