For Sale: Vintage Japanese Peacock + Lotus Bowl

It's a gorgeous bowl, isn't it?

The unique lotus shape gives it a flair unseen in other china, and the brilliant hues of the pattern really make it stand out! The gold detailing gives it an even more expensive feel- but this piece isn't expensive at all, compared to what was paid for it years ago. It has been in storage for a very, very long time. And now, it's time to find it a new home.

I am unsure of the exact age of this work; I only know that is has been in the family since the 1980s and is likely no older than that.

This was one of many pieces in a collection by the Fuji China company. There are other pieces of the same pattern, but I do not have any of the others. It was easily paired with any plain white or white/blue dish sets, and having so many, why pursue more? Instead, I chose a few favourites to keep.

Fuji Quality China bowl is approximately 6.5" across, and about 4" high. The porcelain is in excellent condition. It was made in Satsuma, Japan.

 Won't you take it home with you?
