I was given this bowl about 15 years ago. My Aunt who has passed away told me that it was an antique. It has no visible name on it but it does appear to be old. I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about it. I'm attaching a photo. I can take more if needed.
Welcome to the boards. Your bowl is very pretty. Wish I could help you out but maybe someone will be on soon.. Is it cloisonne?
Thanks so much for responding to my post. Unfortunately I know nothing about the origins of this bowl. I also know very little about antique pottery. Im just hoping someone can give me some insight
Beautiful! Is there no mark of any sort on the bottom?
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Unfortunately no, there are no marks anywhere. Its clearly old. Very puzzling!
It does appear to be cloisonne. Is the bowl metal? Google 'cloisonne bowl' and make comparisons.
It does look similar but the bowl is ceramic.
Lovely. Be extra careful with that beauty. I also think of cloisonné jewelry when looking at the picture. I have a bracelet that looks similar. How lucky you are to have that.
Looks to be hand painted porcelain (does the light filter through "translucent" creating a shadow of your finger when held to bright light?)
The painted design looks Japanese to me also. I have several pieces of Nippon and this is what I am comparing to. Age, perhaps early 1900's?
No the light does not filter through it.
The painting has a raised texture.
If the light does not come through, it is probably just made of china, and not the finer/thinner porcelain.
The raised gold areas are applied and kiln fired just as the painted areas are.
