Porcelain from the Qing dynasty (Qianlong period)

This is a “sanduo” bowl, referring to the Three Abundances: long life, happiness and children. They are symbolized by three fruits finely enameled around the exterior: peach, lychee and pomegranate.

This piece of famille rose porcelain from the Qianlong period also originates in Jingdezhen. Its deep rounded sides rise from a short tapering foot to a slightly everted rim. The base reveals six blue characters (underglaze): a reign mark of the Qianlong emperor.
