    What is the deal with the metal mounted pieces? Were they originally made like that or later mounted.
    This bowl has a stem so I am assuming it was made like that? But I guess they can saw the stem of an existing bowl and mount it.
    I am thinking the bowl is probably with Asian origin. Possibly plain crackle glazed that was later over decorated?
    How about the hardware, European I guess. French?
    Suggestions on age are also welcomed.
    Thanks in advance!

    I think it is a newer item.
    The metal maker may have been from one country and the pottery from another and then assembled for export.
    Although not my taste, I agree with shiloh that it is attractive.

    Thanks for the replies. What is it that make you think it is newer piece? I am not sure how to date the porcelain neither the metal.

    I believe it is a newer piece also. The piece is hard to search for comparable because the shape is called a lot of different things; tazza, centerpiece, compote, compot, vase, footed bowl. Better decorator shops usually carry your type of item. The high end garden/gift shop in my area sold/sells similar items for the last 20 years or so. How to tell? Brass details are just different, perhaps not as refined, and the ceramics look like newer asian imports. IMHO.

    Agree with the others that this is a fairly new import. Similar things can be found at Hobby Lobby, Gordmans, Home Goods, etc.

    Porcelain looks like "Huaping Hall", "Huaping Tang", "Huarong Tang" or "JUWC" or some other comtemporary export porcelains.
