It is very rare to find bowls of this pattern in a famille rose palette. Hugh Moss illustrates one from Grandidier Bequest in the Musee Guimet, Paris in By Imperial Command, pl. 79 dated 1722 to circa 1728, together with two nearly identical bowls in famille verte enamels from the Maze Foundation, pl. 77 and the collection of Barry Dinan, pl. 78 which he dates 1722 to circa 1725. Other famille verte Yuzhi bowls of this rare pattern published include one in The National Palace Museum, Taibei, illustrated in the special exhibition of Imperial Enamel Ware of the Qing Dynasty, Catalogue, 1979, no. 35; another in the Shanghai Museum is included in Chugoku Toji Zenshu, vol. 21, pl. 105; a pair is illustrated by A. du Boulay, Christie's Pictorial History of Chinese Ceramics, p. 240, fig. 4, sold in our London Rooms, 25 November 1974.
Compare with another famille verte pair from the British Rail Pension Fund sold in these Rooms, 2 May 1994, lot 738.
