  • Xupes Reference CEFMTBC020
  • Age Circa 1755
  • Condition The bowl is offered in excellent overall condition without loss, damage or restoration. Typical of these very early examples there is a pooling and gathering to the clear glazes which have crazed with age but these certainly do not detract. There is a small chip to the foot rim which is of little consequence. A very rare example and a wonderful piece for the discerning collector!   View More Details
