En suite with the previous lot, finely decorated probably by Johann Gregorius Hörold, with a large cartouche including miners and prospectors working in a barren countryside, one prospector holding a divining rod, one figure all at different pursuits, sunbeams peeking in from the side, the reverse with a finely painted scene of a winter-scape with two men overlooking a wide-stretching river with a mill and a settlement on its banks, the cartouches alternated by large sprigs of Kakiemon flowers, the inside of the bowl decorated with a chinoiserie landscape with a cat and a bird chasing a butterfly, the inside of the rim with an elaborate gilt c-scroll border, 9.2cm high, 17cm diam, crossed swords mark in overglaze blue enamel
