Catalogue Note

Compare a similar bowl illustrated in Angus Forsyth and Brian McElney, Jades from China, The Museum of East Asian Art, Bath, England, 1994, cat.no. 340, where it is discussed that bowls of this fine quality could only have been produced during the 18th century when stone of this almost flawless quality was in abundant supply, and could well have been one of the bowls ordered from Suzhou by the imperial court in 1753.
