    The precision and quality of the enamelling on the current screen is high, comparable to the finest quality 'Hundred Deer' vases preserved in museum collections. For an example of a 'Hundred Deer' vase from the Qing court collection, preserved in the Palace Museum, Beijing, see Porcelains with Cloisonne Enamel Decoration and Famille Rose Decoration. The Complete Collection of the Treasures of the Palace Museum, Shanghai, 1999, pp98-9, no.85. The treatment of the deer, pine and rockwork on both pieces is similar, suggesting they were manufactured at the same time at the Imperial kilns, Jingdezhen.

    For a larger example of a famille-rose 'Hundred Deer' screen, see an example sold in our London rooms, 10 July 2006, lot 161.
