Not uncommon with quality pieces of the period that suffer damage, this fine example has traces of staple repair holes with traces of remains of rusted staples within the holes, running each side along the clean cracks, this technique is common to 19th century methods and has subsequently had a later, somewhat crude glue to seal the cracks which, all imagery features an honest account of and equally demonstrates that all pieces are tightly intact, it sits very well and whole with a splendid texture, weight and beautiful chime to the porcelain when tapped. Finely constructed with subtlety and skill, an energetic variety of expertly hand painted images, motifs and themes. Wonderful shape, exquisite hand painted figural and floral themes, heavy bowl with 16cm high rising, bold shape with 19thC repair evidence with traces of former rusted staples along later glued cracks.
A magnificent piece that sits well and retains shape and chimes well when tapped. Please request more photos and any questions invited.
