Footnotes

  • Chen Mingyuan is considered one of the most significant potters in the history of the art of Yixing stoneware. His superb craftsmanship has been so highly regarded that connoisseurs and scholars ranked him second only to the Ming dynasty Yixing master, Shi Dabin. He is also undoubtedly the most versatile potter whose works also include pieces for the scholar's table and other objects simulating fruits, vegetables and nuts, an Yixing 'double-gourd' brushwasher with Chen Mingyuan's signature was also sold in these rooms, see Yixing Stoneware from the Mr and Mrs Gerard Hawthorn Collection, Part I, 28 November 2011, lot 209.

    清 朱泥小壺兩件

    「荊溪」、「鳴遠」
    「月下助長吟」、「鳴」、「遠」

    兩小壺皆以朱泥作胎,一壺鼓腹,底鈐「荊溪」篆文圓印與「鳴遠」篆文雙框方印;另一壺扁圓身,底鈐楷書「月下助長吟」刻款、「鳴」篆文圓印及「遠」篆文方印。

    陳鳴遠,清康熙、雍正年間宜興紫砂名匠,一說順治至康熙年間人。陳鳴遠作品近百年來都一直受到收藏家珍愛,其過人的陶塑技藝不僅使他能做出一流茗壺,更能利用不同泥質為文人墨客而作出清文雅玩。香港邦瀚斯曾拍出陳鳴遠款紫泥葫蘆水洗一件,其工藝細膩精湛,巧奪天工,見《好善簃珍藏宜興紫砂》第一部分,2011年11月28日,拍品209。
