    清 1780-1820 瓷胎松石釉鼻煙壺兩件

    一壺成梅瓶形,直頸,溜肩,束腰,除口沿及底足未施釉外,通體施松石釉並飾乳釘紋,上凸雕鎏金海水龍紋,雙龍長牙舞爪,一龍盤旋雲中,一龍從海浪中騰躍而出,氣勢兇猛;另一壺成扁瓶形,撇口,平肩,壺身兩側各塑一舖首耳。壺身施松石釉,飾乳釘紋,前後兩面開光,一面以洋彩繪文人雅士行走亭台樓閣之間,另一面則題詩「竹深留客處,荷靜納涼風」,並鈐一「乾隆」小方印,底足以籃彩施「乾隆年製」四字楷書款。

    另外一隻清乾隆松石釉凸雕鎏金海水龍紋鼻煙壺曾在Neal W.與Frances R. Hunter夫婦收藏中出現,參見紐約蘇富比,1998年9月15日,拍品編號174,之後出版在Denis S. K. Low,《More Treasures from The Sanctum of Enlightened Respect》, 香港,2002年,頁185,編號170。此壺除有「乾隆年製」篆書底款之外,不論從模製紋飾或是工藝來看均十分類似。
