Zentner Collection: Antique Japanese Tansu, Asian Works of Art
The vintage Chinese blue and white bowl is decorated with two dragons and clouds, symmetrically opposite with the flaming pearl between the two dragons. The base of the bowl is a double circular ring which represents eternity.

The Kintsugi repairs to the bowl adds a dimension that brings it to life. The raised maki-e technique has been gilded in a gold lacquer finish with red underglaze.

Own its own, this bowl is a dramatic piece of art or it can be used functionally as a fruit bowl.

Dimensions: 14 1/8" diameter by 6 1/4" high.
