The artist used a traditional motif in the top border which is trimmed in gold. The heavy planter rests on four graceful feet where the sides are curved.
The shape of the planter is a classic antique Chinese design that can be difficult to find in such brilliant condition as with this planter. These bowls had a variety of uses but were very popular for narcissus or bonsai. The planter is unmarked but was possibly mid 19th century Qing. It is in excellent antique condition with only normal expected wear.
There are normal characterisics of old porcelain such as pits, tiny dark spots and spots of clay on the bottom surface. There is loss of gold on the border from normal wear. There could be surface scratches and minor paint loss. There are no chips, cracks, damage or repairs. The inside of the planter does not have dirt or water stains.
This beautiful 19th century Chinese famille rose porcelain planter is a superb example of a classic style and design from old China. You will not find many as nice so don't let it get away!
