A pair of large antique Chinese blue and white bowls with vivid cobalt blue color, showing a beautiful hand painted bird-and-flower motif dated to the 19th century. The outer wall of one bowl is adorned with a magpie lingering in a natural landscape of butterflies, rocks, and peonies. Together these elements, present attractive metaphors of beauty, abundance, everlasting love, and unbending will. On the outer wall of the other bowl, a pair of magpies are singing to each other while surrounded by blossoming peonies and rocks. The inside of each bowl the bowl further echoes the theme outside: peonies and a butterfly are again seen in one central panel while the other shows. A traditonal Chinese garden with rocks together with chrysanthemums.
The painter used spontaneous but skillful brushstrokes to bring the bird-and-flower motif to life on both of the bowls. This pair of bowls will be a wonderful addition to the decor of any home.
