Lot Essay

It is rare to find a Yaozhou bowl of this size preserved with the original cover. A very similar Yaozhou carved bowl and cover (14.8 cm.) from the Yangdetang Collection was sold at Christie’s Hong Kong, 30 November 2016, lot 3117; and another smaller Yaozhou bowl and cover (10.7 cm. diam.) was found in the Lu family cemetery, illustrated in Yishi tongdiao: Shaanxi Lantian Lushi jiazu mudi chutu wenwu (Different World Same Tones: Cultural Relics from the Shaanxi Lantian Lu Family Cemetery), Beijing, 2013, no. 31. Compare also with two bowls and covers of this shape but carved with chrysanthemum scrolls, one in the Victoria and Albert Museum, gift of Sir Alan and Lady Barlow (C104A-1967) and one in the Art Institute of Chicago, gift of Russell Tyson (1950.1629) published by Rose Kerr, Yaozhou Wares from Museums and Art Institutes from Around the World, Hong Kong, 2021, p. 210, nos. 296-297.
