Peonies are outrageous
Beautiful in bloom,
Such lush foliage,
They last all summer long.
A perennial no doubt
They live longer than we do;
So they have been known to thrive,
Living more than 100 years.
A peony requires little maintenance
With roots that are planted firmly,
Given a chance to grow,
They will establish their ground.
And to their life; it is to be worthwhile;
It is to the peonies only purpose;
Is that to be beautiful you know;
They take my breath away.
What is a Peony’s rule for success…
It’s is simply this; Given to full sun,
A well-drained soil; of course; water,
And a little bit of love.
What is it?
Vintage Japanese Marked Gilded Elegant Peony Rose Mid Century Accent Bowl. Beautiful pinks, yellow and pink enamel heavy gilding. The style is a rare square shape scalloped edges with a round base.
This vintage bowl is stamped hand painted. It has gold gilt with scalloped edges.
The bowl has the Japanese stamp is known for imports Marked on the backside. These pieces all date to the 1930’s, so I am assuming this to be in the same age range. There are flowers painted on both sides of the bowl.
