Transitional - Shunzhi - Chinese octagonal 17th century blue and white bowl. Painted to show either a landscape scene or a Confucian scholar sitting on a rocky promontory.
Eight being an auspicious number the bowl is well made and made for the scholar who were the chief officials within the court hierarchy and social classes. Only the scholar could obtain office after passing exams.
Overall the body is in good condition but there is fritting and small nibbles to the rim
