清雍正 粉彩蟠桃獻壽圖圓蓋盒 《大清雍正年製》款


singularly beautiful, of thickly potted circular section and compressed rounded form, the cover sumptuously decorated with a large medallion of two varieties of peach, their branches entwined and bearing eight large brightly coloured fruits, small five-petalled rose-pink blossoms and double white ones, and leaves in several tones of green, the box painted with a skirt of lotus petals shaded in tones of rose pink to greenish yellow with crimson-pink veins, the base inscribed with a six-character mark within a double circle

19.2 cm


盒扁圓形,圓頂,圈足微斂,釉面光潔泛青,飾以粉彩,盒蓋上作蟠桃獻壽圖紋,桃枝花葉環擁八嫣紅壽桃瑞果,五瓣粉桃花,重瓣白桃花,點綴其間,黃彩點花蕊,盒底作蓮瓣紋,底青花雙圈書「大清雍正年製」六字雙行楷書款。

The box and cover are in excellent condition with the enamels very well preserved. There is a shallow approx. 2.5 cm retouched flake, with associated superficial hairlines and overpaint, to the inner lip of the box, which is likely a structural flaw from the firing, opposite a natural glaze gap, neither of which is visible on the exterior.


整體品相非常好,粉彩亦保存完好。盒之內唇沿有一約2.5公分小片剝落,外沿表面相應位置見相關之短沖線,或為窰燒過程導致的瑕疵,現已補釉。器內另外一面唇與盒相接處,有一細小縮釉。兩處瑕疵均未影響整體外觀。
