    The distinctive applied gilt outlines, painted over famille rose enamel on a turquoise ground, are inspired by the gilt cloisons which form the basis of the metalwork technique known as cloisonné enamel. Examples of this palette can be found from the Qianlong period onwards on vases of varying forms: see, for example, a Daoguang period garlic-headed bottle vase with a Shendetang zhi mark, from the Simon Kwan Collection, included in the Min Chiu Society Exhibition in Hong Kong and illustrated by L.A.Cort and J.Stuart, Joined Colors: Decoration and Meaning in Chinese Porcelain, Washington, D.C., 1993, no.51.

    See also a Jiaqing mark and period moonflask illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum: Porcelains with Cloisonné Enamel and Famille Rose Decoration, Hong Kong, 1999, no.174.
