    A well-decorated Chinese export teabowl, thinly potted and translucent, dating from the Qianlong period. The teabowl was originally imported into England in an undecorated state, and was then enamelled in London in the mid Eighteenth Century c 1755-1765 with decoration of flowers and insects. There are traces of gilding remaining on the rim. Diameter 7.5cm (3"), height 3.9cm (1.6").

     
    Chinese export items which are decorated in Europe used to be described by the term 'clobbered'. This somewhat disparaging term does not fit such a finely decorated item as this, which was imported 'in the white' with the intention of adding European decoration.
     
    There has been significant progress in recent years in making sense of where these items were decorated (see for example Stephen Hanscombe 'The Early James Giles and his Contemporary London decorators' published by Stockspring Antiques in 2008). The style of flower decoration on this teabowl is known as 'Type B' and is attributed to the workshops of James Giles.
     
    A very attractive example.
     
    Date: Qianlong (1736-1795)
     
    Condition:
     
    This teabowl is in good condition. There are 2 tiny chips to the foot, and a few tiny glaze frits and chips to the rim. No cracks and no restoration. As can be appreciated from the images, the enamels are in very good condition.
