Footnotes

  • 清嘉慶 粉彩江西十景「徐亭烟柳」碗 礬紅「大清嘉慶年製」篆書款
    粉彩江西十景「潯陽九派」碗 礬紅「大清嘉慶年製」篆書款

    The inscription on the bowls individually reads and translates as:

    Xunyang jiu pai 'Nine Tributaries of Xunyang'
    Xuting yan liu 'Misty Willows at the Xu Pavilion'

    These bowls came from a set of ten bowls, each depicting one of ten beautiful views of Jiangxi province. Unlike other non-landscape famille rose examples made during the Jiaqing period, bowls such as the current lot which were carefully compiled in sets to illustrate dramatic compositions required a great effort in planning and execution. The use of a wide range of enamel colours and attention to non-repetitive subject matters only further accentuated the difficulty and accomplishment of the master enameller. Other series of 'ten views' porcelain bowls were also created during the Jiaqing period, including 'Ten Views of Western Lake', 'Ten Views of Changjiang', 'Ten Views of Lushan' and 'Ten Views of Dongting'.

    A complete set of 'Ten Views of Jiangxi' bowls including two identical to the current lot is in the Meiyintang collection, see Regina Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection. Volume Four (II), London, 1994-2010, pp.296-305, no.1762-1771. Another related Jiaqing riverscape bowl from a private Portuguese collection was also sold in these rooms, Voyages of Discovery: A Connoisseur's Choice, 27 May 2012, lot 5.

    徐亭,即徐孺子亭,位於西湖中。西湖岸邊,垂柳成行,溶溶如煙,當中悄然隱藏一座八角亭,便是徐亭。無論是春霧濛濛或秋雨綿綿之際,亭樹與湖水相映,出現「徐亭煙柳」景致。 潯陽即潯陽縣,位於今江西省九江市。
