Item of the Week: Chinese Export Rose Medallion Punch Bowl

Brooke Friedman

Take a look at this remarkable Chinese Export Rose Medallion Punch Bowl – Before we dive into the details, let me explain a few things about this type of porcelain.  Chinese export porcelain consists of porcelain that was made in China exclusively for export to Europe. Rose Medallion refers to the pink color of the glaze. It typically includes different decorations illustrating birds and flowers.

What makes this bowl so special is the fact that it’s a commissioned piece, making it more rare than a factory made equivalent. The size also makes it unusual. Measuring 8 inches tall and 19 inches diameter, this is no small serving bowl!  Lastly, this eye-catching punch bowl is from 1860! With only slight wear to the gilt and enamel, it is in excellent condition. This spectacular piece will be offered in our upcoming August 1-3 auction.
