Yongzheng-marked bowls of this design are extremely rare. Compare
to a similar Yongzheng-marked example gifted by the B.Y. Lam
Foundation to the Art Gallery, the Chinese University of Hong Kong,
illustrated in Qing Imperial Porcelain of the Kangxi, Yongzheng and
Qianlong Reigns, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, 1995, no. 53.
The Art Gallery bowl is designed with a different type of floral bloom to
the present bowl as well as ruyi-heads within the bajixiang band below the mouth rim. The current bowl has be-ribboned Shou medallions
within a band under the mouth rim. Another Yongzheng-marked bowl
of this pattern but with more pronounced tapering sides, from the same Bernat Collection, was sold at Sothebys Hong Kong, 15 November
1988, lot 27.
