    chinese export european-decorated cherry pickers bowl qianlong

    A Chinese export bowl, lightly carved over its suface with lotus flowers and later over-decorated in Holland with the 'Cherry Picker' pattern. The bowl dates from the late Yongzheng or early Qianlong period c1730-1740, and the Dutch decoration probably dates from c1750. One side of the bow shows a man climbing a ladder to pick cherries from a tree, and the other side shows him giving the basket of cherries to his loved one. Between these two scenes are two simpler panels showing men fishing from a boat with a building in the foreground and hills in the distance. The interior of the bow is decorated around the rim with swags and stylised cherries. The centre of the bowl is decorated with a basket of flowers (now worn from use). Diameter 15cm (5.9").

    The stand is for display purposes only, and is not included with the bowl.
    Dating: Qianlong c1750
    The bowl has one hairline from the rim, visible in the pictures. No other damage. AS is usually the case, the enamels in the centre of the bowl have worn from use over the last 250 years. As can be appreciated from the pictures, the enamels on the outside of the bowl and in very good condition.
