Chinese Porcelain Bowl

by Joe
(Sydney, Australia)

Hi Peter;

I will give you another small Chinese Porcelain bowl for you to comment on. The seal shows it is from the 'Guang Xu' period in Qing Dynasty. I brought this bowl at a small local auction for $75 half a year ago. The bowl's diameter is about 13.5cm.
Can you please tell me if this bowl is authentic or not.
Thanks Peter! Catch you later.

Kind Regards,

Hi Joe,
I cannot comment much on this. Monochrome items are sometimes difficult to judge. With this I would need to inspect it directly, images are not enough, I think.
However, I would like to draw your attention to the shape:
(1) the height of the foot rim, and
(2) the strongly bent top rim.
I cannot make up mind if these are in the normal range or not.
