Lot Essay

Stem bowls of this particular form are usually found covered in monochrome glazes, and rarely feature polychrome decoration. For monochrome-glazed stem bowls of this form, see the copper-red-glazed Qianlong-marked example, of slightly larger size (7 3/8 in. diam), sold at Christie’s New York, 13-14 September 2018, lot 1385, and the Yongzheng-marked stem bowl of comparable size to the current example, but covered in an apple-green glaze and incised with the Eight Buddhist Emblems, included in the Oriental Ceramic Society exhibition, The Ceramic Art of China, 1971, and subsequently sold at Christie’s London, 9 November 2004, lot 162.
