A large Kangxi porcelain Blue and White punch bowl hand-painted in underglaze cobalt blue, China, circa 1700. The outside of the bowl is divided into six panels. Each panel is well painted with a unique and lively scene. Each scene is painted in the traditional style of the Kangxi period.One panel shows two kylins* in a garden (see image #2). In Chinese tradition the kylin is an auspicious symbol appearing only during the reign of a just and righteous emperor who brings peace and harmony to his people. A second panel shows a deer, a crane and a pine tree which are symbolic of the longevity which the giver of the bowl wishes for the receiver.
A third panel shows birds in a flower filled garden. The lower part of the bowl is molded in the form of a lotus-flower with twelve traditional petals which are painted on the outside of the bowl with a variety of flowering plants.
In the well of the bowl is a traditional scene showing a scholar's garden with peonies and a pierced scholar's rock. The inside rim of the bowl is decorated with a continuous border of flowering branches.
