A good Chinese Imari porcelain barbers bowl, c. 1730. Well painted to the centre, with a typical garden scene of flowering plants amongst rockwork, and a fence, in underglaze blue, iron red and gilding. The rim with a continuous band of scrolls, within a gilt line, and having an indentation for the neck.
The footrim unglazed, and pierced for suspension.
This is an exceptional example of a barbers bowl, in that the condition is remarkably fine. No restoration and minimal wear to the gilding.
Very minor wear to the gilding. Otherwise in exceptionally fine condition. No damage. No restoration.
Dutch East India Company records indicate that during the 1729-1760 period Chinese Imari barbers bowls were purchased in China on only three occasions - 1737, 1742 and 1748, with a total of fewer than 850 examples.
