This cloisonné bowl is Fang Ming, meaning in the style of the Ming Dynasty. The Ming Xuande Emperor favored cloisonné and pieces from this period have been recreated in the 17th and 19th centuries. The bowl depicts the Horses of Mu Wang, an Emperor from the Zhou Dynasty who dreamed of becoming a god and tasting the peaches of immortality. He was said to have traveled to the heavens pulled by eight horses, each named for their color. 

This bowl is Qing Dynasty, 19th century, and a wonderful example of Chinese cloisonné. 6 1/2 inches tall and 11 1/4 inches in diameter.
