  • 清雍正 外黃釉堆纏枝花內粉彩雙桃紋碗 青花「大清雍正年製」楷書款

    Provenance來源:
    A Hong Kong private collection, acquired prior to 1995

    香港私人收藏,入藏於1995年以前

    Bowls of this form and decorated with a central border of a continuous floral scroll were very popular during the Yongzheng reign and exist in a number of colours and variations. However, the yellow enamel version is exceptionally rare, possibly due to the association of this colour with the emperor and therefore the stricter and more limited production of this particular colour scheme.

    A very similar bowl with two famille rose peaches on the interior and lemon-yellow enamel on the exterior, Yongzheng mark and period, was sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong, 13 November 1990, lot 290; another was sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 19 March 1991, lot 681. See also a white relief-decorated bowl, Yongzheng mark and period, sold at Christie's New York, 15-16 March 2015, lot 3127; and a celadon-glazed relief-decorated bowl sold in the same rooms, 19 September 2007, lot 369; compare also a blue and white bowl, Yongzheng mark and period, sold at Christie's London, 15 June 1999, lot 69.

    This type of bowls continued to be as demonstrated in a similarly decorated bowl, Jiaqing seal mark and period, from the Qing Court collection, illustrated in Porcelains with Cloisonné Enamel Decoration and Famille Rose Decoration. The Complete Collection of the Treasures of the Palace Museum, Shanghai, 1999, pl.179; and for a Daoguang period example, from the Nanjing Museum, see Treasures in the Royalty. The Official Kiln Porcelain of the Chinese Qing Dynasty, Shanghai, 2003, p.385.

    敞口,弧壁,深腹,圈足。外壁施黃釉,腹部凸印一周纏枝花卉紋。碗內施白釉,碗心以粉彩繪雙桃,色澤鮮豔,嬌豔欲滴。碗底以青花書「大清雍正年製」六字二行楷書款。

    此碗裝飾技法特殊,類似之例,見香港蘇富比曾售出一例,同為雍正外黃釉內粉彩雙桃碗,1990年11月13日,編號290;另見香港佳士得曾售出一例,1991年3月19日,編號681。另有雍正朝但外壁施白釉者,見紐約佳士得售出一例,2015年3月15-16日,編號3127;以及雍正朝外壁施青釉者,售於倫敦佳士得,1999年6月15日,編號69。此類器物後朝亦有仿燒,見北京故宮博物院清宮舊藏嘉慶朝一例,《故宮博物院藏珍品全集:琺瑯彩,粉彩》,上海,1999年,圖179;南京博物館藏道光朝一例,見《宮廷珍藏中國清代官窯瓷器》,上海,2003年,頁385。
