Footnotes

Kinrande (金襴手 , literally "gold brocade") is a Japanese porcelain style where gold is applied on the surface and there are a number of variations. It originated from China during the Jiajing (1521-1566) and Wanli (1573-1620) periods of the Ming dynasty. The mark Changming Fugui is a popular ceramic mark during the 16th century, and most associated with Jiajing period. It appears on various blue-and-white wares, as well as Kinrade-style pieces. For similarly decorated stem-bowl and bowls, see Christie's, Important Chinese Art from the Manno Art Museum, Hong Kong, 28 Oct 2002, lot 547; The Museum of East Asian Art, Bath, online collection record number BATEA:153; The British Museum, online collection Museum number PDF.535.The British Museum example bears an almost identical mark, with slight variation in the character of 'ming'. Many 'changming fugui' marks found on Ming-dynasty examples are of the same variation as the British Museum bowl.

(或)明十六世紀 礬紅地描金洋蓮紋托 「長命富貴」青花楷書款 並供箱 銘「第五十號嘉靖年製金襴手杯台」

金襴手,是嘉靖萬曆年間由中國傳到日本的一種瓷器描金裝飾工藝。「長命富貴」是明中末期流行的民窯底款,也多見於嘉靖朝青花及彩釉描金瓷器。比較類似以描金洋蓮紋裝飾的紅地高脚杯及碗,見佳士得,Important Chinese Art from the Manno Art Museum, 香港,2002年10月28日,拍品547;東亞藝術博物館,巴斯,館藏網絡數據庫,BATEA:153;及大英博物館,館藏網絡數據庫,Museum number PDF.535。大英博物館藏洋蓮紋碗不但紋飾與此拍品相似,底款亦是「長命富貴」。其「命」字寫法稍有不同,乃上「人」下「丙」。其時「長命富貴」款,似多見此種寫法。
