This small, dark medium blue bowl is decorated with a tabletop array of oriental treasures-- vases and baskets of flowers, conch shells and tea chests in front of a fine mesh background. The inside of the bowl is finished with a fine beadwork pattern along the top edge and an inner border of fine mesh. This inner border features elaborately draped reserves of squatty two handled vases, scrollwork and stylized rosebuds. A single final rose decorates the interior bottom of the bowl. We especially like the standing figure with parasol decorating the front of the vase.
