Footnotes

  • The inscription incised on one flowerpot can be translated as 'painted by the resident of Banqiao, Zheng Xie, a day before the lantern festival in the seventh year of Qianlong', whilst the other pot is incised with an apocryphal mark of banqiao and a signature of qingjiang. The incised motifs of bamboo and orchid were probably after the style of Zheng Xie (1693-1765), a native of Jiangsu and renowned painter who resumed an official career as 'official calligrapher and painter' for the Qianlong emperor.
