White flowers in Chinese bowl,copyrighted 2008

When my mother passed away a few years ago , we all divided mementos from the house , and this bowl was one of them , she used to keep the sugar in it ,but when I was young it was in a china cabinet, I really don't know where she got it , but I always liked it! so the other day when I was looking for a small vase to put the white azaleas flowers ,it made a perfect still life for it.
