Overall: 3 3/8 x 7 in. ( 8.6 x 17.8 cm )
Bowl printed in underglaze blue on the exterior with a segmented fence having lobed cutouts surrounded by flowers and grass; other scenes show rocks and trees; some on an island with a pavilion with two birds in flight; interior center is printed with a large flower and the rim is bordered with a double blue painted line; mark in the form of a rinted hatched crescent in underglaze blue.
The Fence, the Pine Cone, and the Three Flowers patterns were the most popular patterns of the last quarter of the 18th century. This bowl is an example of this printing technique.
