Large Antique Chinese Porcelain Punch Bowl Famille Rose Symbolizing Yin and Yang

$8,200

About

WHY WE LOVE IT: Dragons and Phoenixes and Fabulous Colors! We are delighted to offer this large and beautiful Chinese porcelain punch bowl. Decorated in Famille Rose the exterior of the bowl shows a pair of vigorous dragons, and a pair of splendid phoenixes. In traditional Chinese symbolism, a dragon represents power and the male world; while a phoenix stands for beauty and the female domain. . In Chinese culture the pairing of dragon and phoenix is also a metaphor for the harmonious union of a married couple. This would make the bowl a wonderful gift. Furthermore, in traditional Chinese philosophy the combination of a phoenix and a dragon represents the harmony of yin and yang, the two fundamental elements that were believed to be the original and continuing force in every aspect of the universe. On this bowl the dragons and phoenixes are surrounded by blossoming peonies, flaming pearls, and pomegranates, all of which convey good wishes of beauty, strength, and fertility. The painter of this bowl used a variety of joyful colors, ranging from lemon yellow to jade green and rose pink to execute the patterns on the bowl. The rich pigments are indeed visually attractive and give the porcelain profound liveliness. The interior of the bowl is more restrained in the use of color. The rim is decorated with a pale green band of flowers including chrysanthemums, peonies, morning glories, and plum blossoms. The interior of the bowl is adorned with a Han-style tile pattern and cloud scrolls, auspicious symbols of longevity. This marvelous, brightly colored punch bowl was made in the Republican era in the 1920's before stylistic changes in the 1930s. The bowl will be a wonderful addition to any home. Dimensions: Diameter 15.5 Condition: Excellent Price: $8,200.
