Lot Essay

Green-glazed dishes of this type and size with Yongzheng marks are usually incised with a design of the bajixiang supported by lotus sprays, rather than the rarer design of pomegranate scroll found on this dish. A pair of dishes of slightly smaller size decorated with the bajixiang was included in the Min Chiu Society exhibition, Splendour of the Qing Dynasty, 9 June - 2 August, 1992, Hong Kong Museum of Art, p. 353, no. 220; another slightly larger, is illustrated in Great National Treasures of China, Special Exhibition in Kaohsiung City Loaned by the National Palace Museum's Seventieth Anniversary, Taipei, 1994, p. 262, no. 40; and a dish of the same was size sold in our rooms, 3 June 1993, lot 236.
