  • 清嘉慶 粉紅地粉彩纏枝蓮紋雙耳瓶 礬紅「大清嘉慶年製」篆書款

    Bats, lotus and pendent Buddhist symbols amid elaborate, elegantly-spaced scrollwork became an Imperial style prevalent in the Qianlong period, and was continued throughout the Jiaqing period. Pieces with related design and of very comparable quality can be found in the Palace Museum, Beijing: see, for example, The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum: Porcelains with Cloisonné Enamel Decoration and Famille Rose Decoration, Hong Kong, 1999, no.123 with a Qianlong mark and of the period, and nos.166 and 173, both with a Jiaqing mark and of the period. See also a related vase, Jiaqing mark and of the period but with yellow-ground illustrated by P.Lam, Ethereal Elegance: Porcelain Vases of the Imperial Qing: The Huaihaitang Collection, Hong Kong, 2007, no. 135.

    For a Jiaqing mark and period vase, of very similar shape but painted in underglaze blue, see Studies of the Collections of the National Museum of China, Beijing, 2006, no.126.

    Compare also two lime-green-ground vases with related scrollwork design, Jiaqing marks and of the period, which were sold in these rooms, 12 May 2011, lots 349 and 350.
