    More Detail:
    This stunning porcelain bowl recalls the glory days of Chinese export. Decorated inside with a stylized rope and spearheaded border and outside with lushly painted berries and peonies, it makes a grand display on a sideboard or foyer table. Fill it with sparkling punch or rich eggnog as the centerpiece for a celebration, or pasta or salad for everyday entertaining. Stand not included.

    This bowl is distinctive in its striking use of rich dark underglaze blue in combination with delicate shades of famille rose (a rose-pink palette associated with Chinese porcelain). The original antique bowl is on display in the dining room at Bassett Hall. Bassett Hall owes its name to Burwell Bassett, a nephew of Martha Washington who bought the property about 1800 and owned it for nearly 40 years. Bassett served as a congressman and a state senator and delegate. The original Chinese export porcelain bowl was part of John D. Rockefeller Jr.'s collection of antique ceramics which was bequeathed to the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
    Bassett Hall, a two-story, 18th-century frame house located on 585 acres of gardens and rolling woodlands, is a part of the story of the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg. It was in this house that John D. Rockefeller Jr. and his wife Abby Aldrich Rockefeller made their home during the early restoration of the Historic Area, a restoration they themselves financed.
