The decorative motifs on the four panels may be found on other enamel wares, although it is quite rare to find them in this combination on one piece. The most common motif is that of the bats and nine peaches because of their auspicious symbolism, where the bats mean Blessings and the peaches are symbolic of immortality.
Magpies, bamboo and roses are another combination found on a few imperial enamelled and Guyuexuan pieces.
See a Yongzheng mark and period identical vase (although of smaller size) sold in our Hong Kong Rooms, 29 and 30 April 2001, lot 558.
The closest comparisons to the present lot are two vases from the National Palace Museum and illustrated in Metal-Bodied Enamel Ware - The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, 2002, pp.37 and 171. Both are made of cloisonne enamel, the first is dated Ming Dynasty, the second Qing dynasty.
