Hello,July27th2011

The huge Chinese porcelain fishbowl (21″ wide and 18 1/2″ tall) is the largest that we have owned. The colors are greens, bittersweet red, and yellow with black outlining. There are no repairs or cracks; however I will point out some wear at the edge of the rim, obviously from rolling the heavy bowl along the ground to place it. The paneled side shows burs and foliage within fields of floral detail between banded rims. The upper flange is strewn with flowers and tendrils. 19th or early 20th century.

We are eager to hear your specific requests. Please do not hesitate to call or email for more detailed images or to ask questions.

Thanks and regards

-Bob
