    晚清 瓷胎模製白菜鼻煙壺

    壺為像生形,整個壺身成一顆白菜,菜葉包裹成足,菜根莖為壺頸及壺嘴。壺身以粉彩飾綠色菜葉及白色菜根。此壺集寫實及藝術於一體,白菜寓意「百財」,有聚財、招財之意,而其顏色及外形又象徵清白及堅貞純潔,是清末民初較為流行的造型。

    參考一件與本壺形製一致的Meriem舊藏,拍賣於紐約佳士得,2007年9月19日,拍品編號58。另一件如出一轍的J & J舊藏,可參見莫士撝, Victor Graham 及曾嘉寶著,《The Art of the Chinese Snuff Bottle》,編號246,後拍賣於紐約佳士得,2006年3月29日,拍品編號1759。
