This bottle, the baskets of flowers, and such masterpieces as Sale 4, lot 104 and Sale 6, lot 249 suggest an imperial connection. Evidence from the archives indicates that several Qing Emperors ordered certain bottles to be repeated. It is possible that the Qianlong emperor ordered this one to test a carver’s skills and, having approved it, ordered more of the same design but without the yuzhi mark. One other bottle, in a private collection in Florida, is almost identical to this but lacks the reign mark and can have come only from the same design/carving team.
