Lot Essay

It is rare to find a dish of this design with a Yongzheng mark. A nearly identical dish is in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, illustrated in Catalog of the Special Exhibition of Kang-his, Yung-cheng and Chien-lung Porcelain Ware from the Ching Dynasty in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1986, no. 43. For Yongzheng-marked examples sold at auction, see a pair sold at Christie’s Paris, 13 June 2007, lot 208, and a one sold at Christie’s New York, 13 September 2012, lot 1533.
