Qing covered bowl
Hi again Peter and friends. I hope you don't mind me posting more images. I purchased some cheap items today and I would love to get some info on them.
I have seen this item for sale on another site somewhere. I am not sure if this design and exact shape were made over a long period or short. I am wondering if you know what reign this is from? The bottom is unmarked. There are other jars like this around here but many have a bit of damage or the bottom doesn't match the top.
I am curious about another quality issue which I have seen on many pieces including Ming bowls. As you can see in the first photo, the bottom half of the bowl has horizontal lines visible in the picture. I am hoping you can explain why they are there.
Thanks a bunch..
You are welcome Ryan, It is always a pleasure discussing 'real' antiques... :-)
