Footnotes

  • Glass production after the Qianlong era, from Jiaqing to Xuantong periods was mainly focused on monochrome colours.

    For a Guangxu reign-marked turquoise green glass bowl in the Palace Museum, Beijing, see Luster of Autumn Water. Glass of the Qing Imperial Workshop, Beijing, 2005, p.362, pl.181. Compare also another Guangxu reign-marked royal-blue glass bowl from the Hope Danby collection, illustrated by S. Marchant & Son, Exhibition of Chinese Glass.

    清光緒 藍色透明玻璃碗 「光緒年製」刻款

    碗為模製而成。敞口,弧腹,足底圓形凹入。通體透明藍色玻璃。碗外地中心陰刻單方框「光緒年製」雙豎行楷書款。

    乾隆以後從嘉慶至宣統時期的宮廷玻璃製品均以單色玻璃為主,但製作工藝已有所下降。此碗玻璃壁較厚,透明度相對乾隆時期玻璃器已有明顯區別,相對缺乏晶瑩質感,玻璃中已夾雜少去氣泡,另其因外表打磨不均而出現不均勻小坑,都是清晚期造辦處所生產玻璃器的典型特點。
