This is a gorgeous hand painted bowl imported from Japan into the middle east by Bibi importers. The gilding is especially pretty- not only is it around the edges and in the center, but it also makes up much of the pattern on the sides, with the design outlines in gold moriage.
The mark on this bowl is faded, but it says hand painted at the top, has the characters “bibi” in the middle, and Nippon (which means Japan) on the bottom. This mark shows that it was made in Japan, most likely in the mid-twentieth century.
Measures 10″ by 10″ by 2.7″
This bowl is in good condition overall. It has no cracks or scratches, only light wear on it. There is one tiny chip on the underside of one of the corners that is about 1/8″ long, you really have to look for it.
