A deep bowl, Meissen, circa 1740-50.

The bowl, with a notched and undulating rim, is loosely painted on the exterior with trailing flowers in Kakiemon colours.

The base has the crossed swords mark of Meissen, 12cm in diameter.
There is a matching teapot stand, 15cm in diameter, CER0666.

Meissen and other European porcelain manufacturies were keen to copy the Japanese polychrome wares which had arrived from the East late in the previous century and had immediately become popular with collectors.
