Lot Essay

Yellow-ground famille rose floral bowls of this pattern on the exterior and with five iron-red bats to the interior, appear to have developed from the Qianlong reign. A Qianlong-marked example in the British Museum collection is illustrated by H. Moss, By Imperial Command, Hong Kong, 1976, pl. 6. A Jiaqing-marked bowl from the Qing Court Collection, is illustrated in Porcelains with Cloisonne Enamel Decoration and Famille Rose Decoration, The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, p. 205, no. 181. It has been recorded that a large quantity of these yellow-ground bowls were made as early as the second year of the Qianlong reign, ibid, p. 205. A number of Daoguang-marked examples are published including a pair from the Fonthill Collection, sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 1 December 2010, lot 2982; the bowl from the Yangzhitang Collection, sold at Christie's Singapore, 30 March 1997, lot 276; in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, illustrated in Oriental Ceramics, The World's Great Collections, 1982, vol. 11, no. 163; and another bowl illustrated by J. Ayers, Chinese Ceramics in the Baur Collection, vol. 2, 1999, p. 234, no. 338 (A630).
