    A smaller but similar thinly worked chrysanthemum-shape cup and cover, incised with Qianlong yuzhi reign mark in the C.P. Lin collection, is illustrated in The Grandeur of Chinese Art Treasures: Min Chiu Society Golden Jubilee Exhibition, Hong Kong, 2010, p.358, no.212.

    清 痕都斯坦式青玉雕菊瓣蓮花紋盌一對

    玉質清碧色,薄透而光澤,可見細小白色斑點。器壁薄如紙,微透明,菊花辦形敞口,深腹壁,菊花形圈足,足底有花蕊及雙重花瓣。腹壁內側近口沿處淺浮雕對稱梅花兩隻,腹壁外側雕纏枝蓮紋,盌內簡練的梅枝於與外壁繁複的纏枝紋形成鮮明對比,別具巧思。

    此對玉盌來自美國科羅拉多藝術中心,後於1986年9月25-26日紐約蘇富比拍出,拍品編號190,翌年於洛杉磯The Jade Collector收購最後傳到斯塔克收藏當中。在清宮玉器生產取得成就同時,痕都斯坦玉器也猶如異軍突起,進入清代宮廷,收到皇上讚譽。而此類薄胎玉器的雕琢工藝,便是深受痕都斯坦玉器的影響下的產物。參見香港敏求精舍長青館藏一件清乾隆白玉菊瓣蓋盞,著錄於香港藝術館編,《博古存珍:敏求精舍金禧年紀念展》,香港,2010年,頁358,編號212,其胎壁薄而透,亦屬於同類作品。
