I find the Chrysanthemum pattern to be one of the most underrated of the Brilliant Period. A lot of work goes into each piece and the accuracy, depth and polish are unmatched. It’s also aesthetically pleasing and instantly recognizable. This is an older piece and wood wheel polished.
The pattern features four large vesicas. The center porition is made up of a split vesica of crosshatching. It’s framed by cane cutting that converges on a clear center, 8-point hobstar. The star is surrounded on either side by fan cutting. Lying between each large vesica is a deeply cut 22-point hobstar. These hobstars are cut on the curve of the bowl and show extreme depth and precision, seemingly extending further than any other part of the bowl.
The bowl is in great condition with just some minor fleabites and some surface scratching. It measures 9″ wide and 2″ tall. This low bowl displays this particularly lovely pattern quite well. The quality/price ratio can’t be beat.
