Of archaistic hu form, the elegantly shaped vessel supported on a splayed foot, the compressed body rising to a curved neck terminating with a lipped rim, exquisitely worked on one side with a buck and doe under a tree amongst rockwork, the reverse with a riverscape scene of a crane standing on one leg on a rock and the other perched on a pine tree, the neck flanked by a pair of mythical beast head handles suspending loose rings, all surmounted by a domed cover topped with an oval knop with enclosed wan character above a band of ruyi-heads, the clear stone of an icy white colour.
25.8cm high. (2).

    白玉鶴鹿同春圖獸耳活環蓋瓶

    玉質白色,潔淨無瑕,溫潤滋肥,猶如凝脂。瓶橢圓形口,直頸,圓鼓扁身,橢圓形圈足。瓶身兩面各雕圓形開光,一面開光內飾仙鶴,另一面則飾梅花鹿,平底近足處雕花草壽石,一蒼松與一椿樹分別從瓶身兩側蜿蜒升起,其松針及枝葉蔓延至瓶頸,具有「鶴鹿同春」的吉祥寓意。

    與本瓶極為相似的另一件玉瓶,參看香港敏求精舍陳永達收藏一件清乾隆白玉鶴鹿同春圖活環蓋瓶,並曾於香港藝術館展覽,見香港藝術館編,《博古存珍:敏求精舍金禧年紀念展》,香港,2010年,頁360,編號214,其紋飾以及形制與本該瓶基本一致。
