This Chinese Bowl, made during the reign of the Daoguang Emperor, circa 1820, is painted in Polychrome Colors ( many colors) decorated with buds and blossoms of chrysanthemums and peonies. The flowers are placed in a vibrant red, double handled vase, which is decorated with a poetic lotus flower.
Since the Song Dynasty Chinese scholars have believed that the lotus is a symbol of purity and virtue because though it grows in muddy ponds it remains clean white. The most famous poetry on this subject is Zhou Dunyi's "Admiration for Lotus Flowers".  The bowl is further adorned on the rim with pink enamels showing cherry blossoms, and floral cartouches (the pink enamels are slightly faded).
The bowl has an unusual shape with a cut out in the rim.  It was originally used as a barber's bowl.
