Provenance

Sotheby's Hong Kong, 29th October 2001, lot 609.

Catalogue Note

No other Yongzheng period bowl in this style with Shoulao in the centre appears to be published.

It is rare to find a Yongzheng mark and period famille-rose enameled bowl with figural subjects devoid of all background.  A dish and a bowl with similar figures on the exterior in the Palace Museum, both are set in a landscape; see  The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, vol. 38, Hong Kong, 1999, nos. 154 and 155. No other Yongzheng period bowl in this style with Shoulao in the centre appears to be published.
