Hand Painted Nippon Moriage Enameled Bowl

Item Details

A hand-painted Nippon moriage beadware bowl with gold enameled decoration. The lovely porcelain bowl has a scalloped edge with a slight paneled ‘root’-like texture. The piece has a spray glaze in deep, rich ochre, fading to lemon yellow at the base. Inside is finely hand-wrought moriage, or slip-trailed, and beaded decoration in gold enamel, with two beautiful gilt butterflies. The outside rim has delicate gold-painted floral decoration. The piece is not marked, but research indicates it dates between 1891 and 1921 and is a beautiful example of moriage.

Condition

Moriage pieces often have chips; this bowl is in exceptionally good condition.
