Lot Essay


The mark Chuxiugong may be translated as 'made for the Chuxiu Palace or Palace of Assembled Elegance'. A similar dish, also with a Chuxiugong mark and dated to the Guangxu period, is illustrated by G. Avitabile, Vom Schatz der Drachen (From the Dragon Throne), Chinese Porcelain from the 19th and 20th centuries in the Weishaupt Collection, London, 1987, p. 108, no. 156. A related dish with yellow dragons on a dark blue ground, Guangxu mark and period, is illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum - Miscellaneous Enamelled Porcelains, Plain Tricoloured Porcelains, Shanghai, 2009, p. 81, no. 65.
