A very similar pair of ogee bowls was sold at Christie’s New York, 20th November 1979, lot 272. See also a slightly smaller bowl of similar ogee form, in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in Qing Porcelain of Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong from the Palace Museum Collection, Hong Kong, 1989, p. 1989, pl. 47; and another sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 17th November 1975, lot 119.
The design on these bowls is steeped in auspicious symbolism; as the combination of peonies (fuguihua), magnolia (yulan) and crab apple (haitang) forms the auspicious wish yutang fugui (‘May your house be blessed with wealth and honour’).
