Catalogue Note

These delicate bowls are notable for their exquisite lace-like decoration, which was made by piercing the body with a delicate openwork design of small perforations that were subsequently filled with a clear glaze. An innovation of the Qianlong period, this decoration is known in the West as ‘grains-de-riz’ [rice grain], because the tiny perforations resembled small grains of rice.

Qing Porcelain from the Palace Museum Collection, Hong Kong, 1989, pl. 147; another in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, published in John Ayers and Satō Masahiko, eds, Sekai tōji zenshū/Ceramic Art of the World, vol. 15, Tokyo, 1983, pl. 280; one with a more elaborate motif, from the Meiyintang collection, illustrated in Regina Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, vol. 2, London, 1994, pl. 793, and sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 8th October 2012, lot 3; and a pair from the Alfred F. Pillsbury collection in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, included in the exhibition Chinese Ceramics from the Prehistoric Period through Ch’ien-Lung, Los Angeles County Museum, Los Angeles, 1952, cat. no. 320.


本對盌玲瓏透花以精細鏤空紋飾組成,後再填透明釉,乾隆年間創製,西方稱之為「grains-de-riz」(米粒),因其鏤空精細如米粒纖小。
