Qing Dynasty 8 Immortals Porcelain Bowl / Yongzheng Mark with a protective metal band around the top rim and base. The metal stops short of covering the inside edges of the rims, with the rims showing no cracks or chips.
The particular way in which the artist has executed and combined the painting on this bowl it is highly likely that this bowl was made to be presented as a birthday gift with the five blessings in the form of five bats being released from the gourd and the Shou character with three bats on the inside centre wishing the receiver long life.
Furthermore, the bowl has been given a protective metal layer similar to this Eight Immortal Bowl to protect it from breakage which would indicate that it was special to the receiver or person to whom it was passed on to.
