It is rare to find vases of this shape emulating the rich fifteenth century combination of underglaze-blue and yellow enamel. A Qianlong version with a globular body rising to a waisted neck was sold at Christie's Hong Kong, The Jarras Collection, 8 October 1990, lot 361.
The quality of the enamelling and underglaze-blue painting corresponds to the best examples of the Imperial wares of the period. Compare the decoration on the present example with a very similar Yongzheng marked bowl in the Baur Museum Collection, Geneva, illustrated by J. Ayres in Chinese Ceramics in The Baur Collection, Volume 2, Geneva, 1999, p. 91, no. 210.
