Footnotes

  • 明 青白玉透雕螭龍耳盃

    Provenance:
    An American private collection
    Marchant, London

    來源:
    美國私人舊藏
    倫敦Marchant

    盃直口圓唇,腹部斜收,圈足直壁外撇,盃身兩側各鏤空雕螭龍銜花以為耳鋬,盃身一側淺浮雕詩文兩句,文曰:「漁留扁舟小,山風兩岸聞」,背側則浮雕淺刻溪山漁隱圖,畫面疏簡蕭瑟。

    明代承宋制,十分流行雙耳盃,背身淺浮雕山水詩文,耳鋬有作螭龍、花鳥、人物諸樣,本件為螭龍銜花耳,頗少見,可參考北京故宮藏一件明代白玉花耳山水人物盃,見《故宮博物院藏品大系玉器篇7》,北京,2011年,編號142,頁162。
