Our piece, which dates to about 1870, has a Scallop shaped body with bas-relief sculpted decoration of a Heron devouring a Dragonfly surrounded by tropical foliage. The details are exquisite.
The bowl measures 9 x 11-1/2 inches and 3 1/2 inches tall including it's base. Aside from a few spots of oxidation, it is in magnificent condition!
Our research turned up several others on Internet sites which do not bear any maker marks and are smaller than ours by about an inch across. We are also happy to state that we offer ours at a better price.
