Lot Essay


Yongzheng-marked monochrome 'chrysanthemum' bowls are exceptionally rare. A Yongzheng-marked, celadon-glazed ‘chrysanthemum’ bowl of approximately the same size (18 cm. diam.), also potted with twenty-eight petals, in the Meiyintang Collection, is illustrated by R. Krahl in Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, Volume Two, 1994-2010, p. 206, no. 860. The Meiyintang bowl was subsequently sold at Sotheby’s Hong Kong, The Meiyingtang Collection Part V: An Important Selection of Imperial Chinese Porcelains, 8 April 2013, lot 5.
