Catalogue Note

This ornate, lively pattern was designed during the Yongzheng period and reproduced by successive Qing emperors. It is rare to find a bowl of this pattern bearing a Jiaqing mark; most examples date from the Yongzheng and Daoguang periods. For a Yongzheng period example see a reconstructed bowl illustrated in Gu taoci ziliao xuancui [Selection of ancient ceramics], vol. 2, Beijing, 2005, pl. 143 and a pair that sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 5th October 2016, lot 3624. A Jiaqing bowl of this form and decoration is illustrated in The Official Kiln Porcelain of the Chinese Qing Dynasty, Shanghai, 2003, pl. 362.
