Catalogue Note

Compare a closely related bowl of slightly smaller size and similar design and stone quality in the National Palace Museum collection, Taipei, illustrated in Teng Shu-ping, ed. Exquisite Beauty: Islamic Jades, Taipei, 2007, pl. 254. The present bowl, of Chinese craftsmanship, appears to have drawn from and blended design elements from the area then called 'Hindustan'. Once the popularity and market for Mughal jades had become apparent in the Qianlong period, Chinese artisans began copying and incorporating Mughal patterns into their own creations. Several of the Chinese forgeries with blended Chinese and Islamic motifs made their way into the Qing palace as tribute from the Mughal empire, creating confusion in the court. The Qianlong emperor assumed they were legitimate Mughal creations and accused the foreign artisans of 'stealing Chinese styles,' ibid, p. 279.
