    Commentary:
    This is the second bottle in the Bloch Collection from the famous set of eight, discussed under lot 107 (Treasury 6, no. 1245), the commentary for which lot applies equally to this example. The symbolism differs, however. Here the two attendants preparing tea underneath a wind (feng)-blown lantern (deng) imply '[May you live in] abundance' based on a pun on the term for 'bumper harvest' (fengdeng).

    說明:
    本壺兩幅模擬郎世寧十駿犬圖中的金翅獫圖與斑錦彪圖的內畫向來很有名。王習三畫的狗和原畫的一模一樣。不過, 他也把兩幅的不同背景聯結在一起,形成了通體的御苑風景,不失為新的藝術品。不幸的是,他的徒弟只懂找圖像可以壺裏臨摹的多,懂用內壁的幅度創造獨立的藝術品的少,他們忙著依樣畫葫蘆。若王習三給賣本事的徒弟開方便之門,內畫藝術就瀕於陷入雕蟲小技了。

    金翅獫是蒙古族科爾沁部落的一位四等台吉,丹巴林親(Danborincin),所進貢的。滿文的名字是 'yolotu', 就是"西藏狗"的意思。斑錦彪是太學士傅恒(約1721~1770)所進貢的。滿文的名字是 'junggintu', 就是"各色絨織的碎花錦緞"的意思。參閱莊吉發1992,頁145、146。
