This Chinese porcelain basin is designed in the colors of Famille Rose and was made during the Jiaqing period (1796-1820). The body of the basin stands on a round foot rim and forms a broad, sweeping upper rim. The sides are adorned with different ornaments on a fresh lime green ground. Lotus tendrils, flowers, peaches and pomegranates adorn the cavetto, the inner as well as the outer rim. The vibrant enamel colors of Famille Rose create a brilliant look and feel. The perfectly set seal mark of the Jiaqing period in iron red is visible in the center underneath.
