The flowers are with excellent detail; and colour. the Peony is known as the Queen of Flowers the emblem of Wealth and distinction and represents Spring. The Chrysanthemum symbolises the wish for a pleasant life, generosity, and retirement from public places.

Two bats depicted in red mean vast happiness extended to the heavens.

Inside the foot rim is a double circle around a seal in filled with flowers. A device found on very good export porcelain from this era.

Over all a wonderful bowl
