A very impressive and stylish Chinese glazed pottery tea bowl decorated with ho-ho birds in the Jian Ware style and believe to date from the 20th century or possibly earlier. The round tea bowl stands on a narrow round unglazed foot and is finely decorated with three ho-ho birds flying around a flower to the inner bowl in black on a mottled blue glazed ground. The outer bowl is decorated in black glazes with random thick splashes of mottled blue glaze running down the body of the bowl. The bowl is not marked but a very fine quality example.
From a small collection of five similar quality Chinese glazed tea bowls.
In good condition.
