LabelThe outside of this bowl is decorated with Renaissance-style motifs of flower baskets encircled by laurel wreaths. The date 1727 and the initials M.R are centered in a crowned cartouche flanked by griffins embellished with tassels. The design on the inside of the bowl---Chinese good luck symbols with flowing ribbons---shows the influence of Chinese porcelain of the transitional period of Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722).
