Pair late Qing dynasty porcelain bowls. Overglaze decoration in blue and green enamel of peonies. Also decorated with inscriptions in gilt enamel and chop marks in red enamel. The rims an intentional, attractive caramel colored burnt biscuit. Apocryphal Qianlong seal marks in blue under the glaze. One in good condition with only minor enamel loss and light rubbing inside the bowl. The other also with an old, small area of repair along the outside of the rim. Rim diameter of each about 7 inches (17.78 cm). Beurdeley features a similar, green glazed cup, purportedly Jiaqing mark and period, in color plate 109. But we believe these bowls must date from the end of the Qing dynasty.
