A blue and white Han bowl, Chinoiserie design, octagonal and elegant.
Eight is a lucky number in Chinese culture, associated with wealth and prosperity. And this Han bowl suits the grasp of royalty - you can see it held by an emperor, luxurious treats flowing over the eight sides as they gesture with the bowl held high.
Chinoiserie patterns began as a western imitation of Asian art, taking inspiration from China, Persia and Korea. The pattern is a seamless replication of decoration - a theme of octagons that appear like separate nets, like dreamcatchers or fine webs. The sprawl doesn't overlap, but rests side by side; each pattern existing both alone and in tandem. A whimsical wonder.
If you're seeking function, you can fill the bowl with rice or dates - but on Christmas, why not treat yourself? Fill it with chocolates or nuts and feast like a king without fear of being overthrown by scheming subjects. At least, not until you all play Monopoly.
Pretty bowl for either trinkets or for display
