Catalogue Note

A Qianlong bowl of this pattern was included in the exhibition Ch'ing Porcelain from the Wah Kwong Collections, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, 1973, cat. no. 106; another was included in the Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong exhibition Ch'ing Polychrome Porcelain, Fung Ping Shan Museum, 1977, cat. no. 86; and a third is illustrated in Gordon Lang, The Powell-Cotton Collection of Chinese Ceramics, Birchington, 1988, col. pl. 16.  See also a closely related bowl sold twice in our Hong Kong rooms, 18th May 1988, lot 285, and again 27th April 2003, lot 197.

The three fruit painted on this bowl endow it with auspicious meaning; the lychee represents the wish for a son to continue the family name, the pomegranate the wish for many sons, while the peaches symbolise longevity.
