- JUST FOR POSITION DO NOT DELETE
This bowl has an open mouth, round foot, and deep, rounded sides. The interior, exterior, and the area within the foot are covered in white glaze. The exterior sides have two groups of floral designs in black outlining. The interior bottom has a text written in black and two round embossed seals. The interior of the rim has an arrowhead-pattern band in gold outlining.
This type of arrowhead patterning was popularly during the 1850s through 1870s and serves as evidence for dating the bowl.
The piece was donated to the Palace Museum in 2005 by Volvo Trucks Greater China of the Volvo Group.
