The Property of a Lady
A pair of yellow and green enamel 'boys' bowls
Yongzheng six-character marks and of the period
Each well-potted with deep rounded sides rising to a flaring rim, the exterior intricately incised with a scene of eight boys playing musical instruments and forming a procession on a terraced garden amidst gnarled pine trees, all set between a band of archaistic ruyi motif and overlapping lappets above the short tapering foot, highlighted in a green glaze reserved on an rich yellow ground.
