Lot Essay

Previously sold in these Rooms, 26 April 1998, lot 553.

The shape and colour of the bowl is most probably inspired by painted or moulded porcelain examples, such as the Yongzheng-marked yellow-glazed bowl with a relief moulded border of archaistic dragons from the Christina Lok Balsara Collection sold in these Rooms, 19 January 1988, lot 270, and included in the Exhibition of Important Chinese Ceramics from the Robert Chang Collection, Christie's London, 1993, catalogue, no. 56, together with a related bowl, the moulded dragons reserved in pale turquoise, no. 112.
