Catalogue Note

Sumptuary laws permitted only the Emperor, Empress, or Dowager Empress to use wares glazed yellow on both the interior and exterior. Such a hue owes its color to the low amount of iron oxide present. Similar Qianlong-marked bowls, albeit slightly smaller, were offered in these rooms, 1st-2nd April 1974, lot 266, and 4th December 1984, lot 357.
