This wonderful piece is a total showstopper!
It's oversized frill basket weave porcelain bowl is an incredible feat of craftsmanship, each section is twisted to imitate a rope pattern, then woven and intertwined to produce this stunning basket weave effect. All set on a moulded white stem.
Thought to have been made in the mid 19th Century in France, this is a real rarity, especially in this size.
The condition is very good - there are a couple of very small surface chips on the weave, but these are very hard to spot. overall it is in wonderful condition.
