Replica of the "Sydney Punchbowl"…
A handmade replica of the precious original "Sydney Punchbowl", the antique Chinese porcelain bowl in the State Library of New South Wales.

Jingdezhen: handmade for Hordern House, 2014.

Hand-cast and hand-painted porcelain punchbowl, 170 mm height, 450 mm diameter; accompanied by a limited edition scholarly book by Elizabeth Ellis.

Superb replica of the original Chinese punchbowl: one of only 25 examples

The replica of one of the most fascinating (and mysterious) of all the unique treasures held in the State Library of New South Wales was created by the traditional craftsmen of the most famous of all porcelain centres, where the original fine large porcelain "Sydney Punchbowl" (as it has been named in modern times) was created around 1820. The bowl is decorated with a panoramic scene of Sydney Cove around the outside and a group of Aboriginal figures on the inside, and finished with exquisite floral and gilded banding. As the culmination of a complex eight-year project Hordern House finally offered for sale just 25 examples of this remarkable production.

Hand-made for Hordern House by Chinese craftsmen in the so-called "porcelain city" of Jingdezhen, the design, shape and hand-painted colours and gilding are as true and accurate a representation of the unique and beautiful original as is possible, though as a handmade object no two examples are exactly alike: each one is unique. Accompanying each bowl is a finely produced monograph on its history by Elizabeth Ellis OAM (former Mitchell Librarian and now an emeritus curator of the State Library of New South Wales) in a special limited edition.
