Large Bowl

Pattern Category: Based on Chinese Originals

Object Type: Dinner and Dessert Wares


  • Diameter: 12.125 in inches

Source: Chinese Original


The Rock pattern is an early design inspired by a Chinese Export  pattern painted on porcelainRock I was developed along with the Mandarin pattern.  It differs from Mandarin in that there are only three branches on the willow tree whereas the tree in the Mandarin pattern has four.  The pattern is pre-1800 and is shown here on the inside of a large earthenware footed bowl, perhaps intended for punch.  The border copies some of the elements of the Chinese original but not all.  The border is also used on Forest Landscape I and II.   This example is not marked.  Shown below is a side view of the bowl.  Click on the image below to enlarge it.
