Lot Essay

This appears to be a very rare form in cloisonné enamel, and is a fairly rare form in any other medium. In porcelain it can be seen in a small vase, Yongzheng mark and period, covered with a ru-type glaze, in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, and illustrated in Gugong Wenwu Jinghua Baipingzhan, Taipei, 1997, p. 46, no. 21.
