PAIR QIANLONG QUATREFOIL BOWLS, COVERS & STANDS
With Applied Floral Decoration, c1750
The pair of lobed bowls with applied flowering and foliate vines running horizontally around the bowl, between blue cell diapering to the rim and footrim, beneath lids of conforming shape, applied decoration and rim cell diapering and with closed bud finials, resting on a matching quatrefoil stands with further applied floral branches and blue cell diapered rims
Condition : the flower tips the usual chips and minor restorations; one stand with two stabilized cracks to the base
(visible on the left stand as shown above and below); firing crack to one side of one lid (shown below)
and several stems throughout (as expected)
These applied decorations are quite delicate and susceptible to damage both in firing and use. It is usual to find them without some decoration chipping. To find a pair retaining their original stands and covers is unusual.
6.25” Long, The Stands / 4.75” Wide, The Bowls
