Black and white Chinese Peking glass bowl
Chinese, 20th Century
Height 7cm, diameter 16cm
This beautiful bowl is crafted from Peking glass, a traditional Chinese technique whereby one layer of coloured glass is laid over another layer and then carved away, leaving relief decoration formed from the upper layer. The present bowl features black overlaid on white glass, with the black glass carved into a variety of traditional forms, such as blossoms visited by birds.
