    Hi all

    Well here is a bowl that I have had for over 10 years and I still don't know anything about it. I've always thought that it was for the remnants of tea, like a slops bowl, mainly due to the size and the staining to some of the white porcelain internally. Date wise I was thinking maybe 19th century, purely by the decoration, the wear to the inside and the wear to the rim on the base, but that is just an uneducated guess really as I just don't know enough about these things. It is quite thick porcelain and relatively heavy, not dissimilar to a stoneware soup bowl. It is 15.5cm wide and 6.5cm tall. The mark I have not got a clue.

    Anything you can tell me would be great.

    Thanks all
    Hamish

      The photo's were definately the correct way up when I attached them, so no idea what has happened there!

      Hello,
      It appears you have a porcelain piece from the Emperor Quianlong and dates from 1736 to 1795.
      Although there are Reproduction marks from the twentieth century out there, your mark actually looks more authentic to the 18th century to me.

      You can Check out the Emporer and Dynasty marks and compare at Gotheburg.com.
      Just do a "Gotheburg Chinese Mark" Google search.
      Hope this helps.

      Thank you Southerner. The decoration is applied very thickly, would this give any indication of timeline? My guess for this was that being something function and used every day it needed to be hard wearing as opposed to beautifully fine pieces?
