Early 19th Century Japanese Painted Lacquerware Bowl
This is an unusual piece—dark and elegant. The painted design is a bouquet of poppy flowers and a flying swallow. It is in muted tones of rusty orange, gold and green. It appears that the design was at one time covered with gold leaf, and is now worn to only a few spots. On the underside of the bowl, there is an unusual repeated pattern of what appears to be Liberty Bells which seem to have transfered to the bowl from an image from packing material or something. It is a real mystery yet to be solved. Dimensions of the piece are 11 1/4" diameter by 2 1/4" deep. Condition is very good considering it's age. It has a patina which shows it's natural wear from use which gives it an authentic feel. There is one small area inside the bowl where the lacquer is worn down to the base. The light-colored spots on the bottom are residual material on the surface, perhaps paint, which could likely be carefully removed. The bowl is very light weight.
