The shape of this bowl is unusually deep and globular, and appears to be based on that of a monk's alms bowl. During the 18th century this shape was translated in various materials, including an imitation 'Jun' porcelain bowl stamped with a Yongzheng mark, illustrated in John Ayers, Chinese Ceramics in the Baur Collection, 1972, vol. III, no. A356; and a jasper alms bowl inscribed with sutras in the Qing court collection, illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum. Jadeware (III), Hong Kong, 1995, no. 117.  The combination of the simple alms bowl shape and the richness of the material used in the present example, reflects the imperial taste for elegant jade vessels made to show off the superiority of the stone.
