Catalogue Note

While western collectors coined the name 'egg and spinach,' the Chinese name for this type of sancai decoration is 'tiger skin.' A related pair in the Shanghai museum collection with Kangxi reign marks is illustrated in Wang Qingzheng, Kangxi Porcelain Wares from the Shanghai Museum Collection, Shanghai, 1998, pl. 139.
