Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Gilbert MacLeod, M.D., H.E.I.C.S. (1759-1818), served as a surgeon in the East India Company; his daughter, married James Stewart, D.L., J.P. of Cairnsmore, Kirkcudbrightshire; and thence by descent to present owner. See also Lots 228,230 and 231.

    This rather unusual flask is paralleled with another example of similar construction with applied jade segments and copper dividing panels in a flask in the National Palace Museum, Taipei (Catalogue of a Special Exhibition of Hindustan Jade in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1983, plate 55.) Like our flask, the joins between the segments are set with red glass inlays and the mouth rim is made of a separate ring of jade.
