Lot Essay

The lovely mille fleurs or wanhuajin (myriad flower brocade) design was developed in the Qianlong reign (1736-1795) and continued to be much admired at court during the reign of his successor, the Jiaqing Emperor. A pair of cups decorated with the same design and bearing iron-red Jiaqing marks from the Edward T. Chow Collection was illustrated by C. and M. Beurdeley in La Ceramique Chinoise, Fribourg, 1974, no. 151 and subsequently sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong, The Edward T. Chow Collection, Part One, 25 November 1989, lot 171, and again at Christie's Hong Kong, 29-30 April 2002, lot 708. See, also, the pair sold at Christie's New York, 21 September 2004, lot 343.
