    Very similarly depicted leafy lotus tendrils can also be seen on a Jiaqing mark and period lime-green-ground baluster vase in the Palace Museum, Beijing, illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum. Porcelains with Cloisonné Enamel Decoration and Famille Rose Decoration, Hong Kong, 1999, pl.172. The thick quality of the enamels, as seen on the present lot, is typical of densely decorated famille rose wares of the Jiaqing period. Compare with a famille rose turquoise-ground vase, sold in our London rooms, 11 November 2010, lot 327.

    Famille rose yellow-ground wares were popular in the Imperial court during the mid Qing Dynasty, in the reigns of the Qianlong and Jiaqing Emperors. As the colour yellow was regarded as only for the Emperor, Empress and Dowager Empress, vessels and wares of this colour were especially prized. See for instance a rare yellow ground famille rose vase, Jiaqing mark and period, sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 1 December 2010, lot 2981. A famille rose yellow ground Tibetan-style ewer, Jiaqing seal mark and of the period, was sold in our London rooms, 10 November 2011, lot 187.

    侈口,斜壁,圈足。盤內壁施黃釉,其上用五彩繪製三層圖案:盤心為花卉圖案,盤底一周繪製吉祥結、花、雙魚、法輪圖案,圖案之間飾吉祥花卉圖案,內壁一周繪螺、傘、蓋、罐圖案,圖案之間飾吉祥花卉圖案。盤外壁粉彩繪制花卉蝙蝠紋五組,等距分隔。盤底正中為礬紅「大清嘉慶年製」六字三行篆書款。
