From a South Seattle estate, we are delighted to offer this rare Chinese export porcelain bowl featuring the royal arms of Louis XV, painted in enameled blue, famille verte enamels and gilt. Emblazoned with the arms of the French crown, this extraordinary bowl is believed to be from the Yongzhen era, produced in the mid-1700s. While the bowl has no discernible chips, cracks, breaks or restoration, the paint is worn, consistent with age. It measures approximately 8 diameter x 8 deep x 2.6 high.
The rich blue and gilded detailing recalls Japanese Imari porcelains by which it was, no doubt, inspired, and the form reflects the very latest in European porcelain. See French historian Stéphane Castelluccio's new work on the royal inventories, including references to the service "Le service de porcelain de Chine aux armes de Louis XV, " L'Objet d'Art, April 2011, pps.
