Catalogue Note

It is rare to find a Yongzheng example of this design, more commonly found in the Qianlong period, such as a pair of bowls sold in our New York rooms, 13-14th September 2016, lot 270. For the Ming dynasty prototype of this design, see a Jiajing bowl with additional borders, illustrated in Sekai tōji zenshū/Ceramic Art of the World, Tokyo, 1976, vol. 11, fig. 29.
