Catalogue Note

Another rare Qianlong reign-marked blue and white zhadou of this size and form was sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 30th November 2011, lot 2954, and again at Christie's New York, 17th March 2017, lot 1221.

The form of the zhadou is archaistic, encapsulating the refined taste of the Qianlong Emperor, who valued works of art created in imitation of antiquity. A bamboo zhadou vessel of similar form in the Palace Museum, Beijing was included in the exhibition Views of Antiquity in the Qing Imperial Palace: Special Catalogue to Celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Palace Museum, Macau Museum of Art, Macau, 2005, cat. no. 131, where it is noted that the form follows the early Shang prototype.
