late 19th/early 20th Century Chinese overlay carved/Peking glass bowl. Chinese overlay carved glass, also known as Peking glass, is a traditional form of art that starts with a one-color glass base, dipped into contrasting colored glass one layer at a time. The artist then carves away portions of the overlaid glass to reveal layers of other colors underneath, following certain designs. It is a lengthy and tedious process that is time consuming and labor intensive. However, the result is exquisite and exotic, unlike carved glass from other countries and regions. This beautiful piece has an opaque white base with vibrant red overlay carved in an unending floral motif featuring three peonies and stem work. Unmarred with no chips or cracks, this must-have piece is in extraordinary condition!
