Yongzheng-marked bowls of this pattern are extremely rare and only very few examples are known, including a pair sold at Sothebys Hong Kong, 15 May 1990, lot 286; and the other pair from the collection of S. C. Davis (1871-1940), sold separately at Sothebys New York, the first bowl sold on 27 November 1990, lot 190, and the other, sold 26 November 1991, lot 356; and a pair sold at Christies Hong Kong, 29 May 2007, lot 1366. It is interesting to note the unusual stippling of effect of the iron red in the portrayal of the ripened peach fruits on the interior. This method probably started in the late Kangxi period, and can been seen on the peaches of a Kangxi-marked doucai bowl from the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Qingdai Yuyao Ciqi, Beijing, 2005, p. 126, no. 32. During the Yongzheng period, the doucai technique was further enhanced with the addition of the famille rose enamels, enriching the colour combinations and texture of the decoration, as exemplified on the current bowl.
