  • 清 1840年或1900年 孔雀石刻仕女詩文鼻煙壺

    壺呈扁瓶形,短頸,溜肩,橢圓形底內凹,圈足。壺通體呈現孔雀石天然黑綠相間紋路,壺身腹壁一面陰刻花園仕女,仕女端坐桌前,左手托腮,右手扶書卷,若有所思。上刻「庚子冬月。漁夫刻」行書款識,並帶一枚橢圓形小章。另一面則陰刻詩文:「去年元夜時,花市燈如晝。月上柳梢頭,人約黃昏後。今年元夜時,月與燈依舊。不見去年人,淚濕春衫袖。生查子,元夕。」,落款「庚子冬月,漁夫刻。」並鈐一小方印,圖案及詩文再飾以鎏金,細節與孔雀石天然紋理形成對比。此壺圖案刻畫細緻,筆法饒富生機,女子神態刻畫生動,而詩文纏綿悱惻,字體蒼渾有力,詩圖相應,表現閨中人的綿綿情思。
