Description:  Medium size Soup Bowls in perfect condition are very scarce to rare compared to similar size luncheon plates. The soups range in diameter from 8 1/2″ to 8 7/8″ and 1 1/2″ to 1 5/8″ deep. We consider that they must be at least 1 1/2″ deep to differentiate them from luncheon plates, which are 7/8″-1 1/4″ deep. The 3 soup bowls pictured are a representative sample. As with all early Canton plates they are very attractive with their primitive painting. All of these soups have glazed bottoms and are heavier and sturdier than the later bowls with thin porcelain and straight-line borders.
