Catalogue Note

Originating from the Yongzheng period and possibly influenced by European sepia wares, the technique for painting porcelain with black ink enabled the artisans of the imperial workshop to invoke the compelling attributes of traditional Chinese landscape painting for decorative use.
For another closely related pair of grisaille-decorated bowls, inscribed with similar underglaze blue reign marks in three columns, see the pair from the estate of William and Jennifer Shaw, sold in these rooms 11th-12th September 2012, lot 83.  Another pair was sold in our London rooms, 20th June 2001, lot 18. Compare also a pair of bowls included in the exhibition The Wonders of the Potter’s Palette, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong, 1984, cat. no. 57.
