Description: A fine small Chinese ruby-pink yanghong enamelled bowl, Yongzheng six-character mark within double circle, with rounded sides rising to the slightly everted rim, the interior painted with peach blossom in famille rose enamels, and the exterior is covered with a vibrant ruby-pink enamel in contrast to the white interior, approximately 11cm diameter Provenance: Private collection and exhibited at Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities, Stockholm, Te som konst (Tea Art), loaned 16th March to 18th August 1996. Although the original collector's name is not disclosed, he was well known as a connoisseur having formed a study collection acquired both in London and Sweden. His advice is said to have been of great help to many of the members of the Kinaklubben (The China Club) which included the Swedish Crown Prince Gustav Adolf, Emil Hultmark and Carl Kempe. For a similarly decorated pair of tea bowls see, Qing Imperial Monochromes: The Zande Lou Collection , Fan, George. et al, published Hong Kong, 2005, no.16, described as having paper- thin bodies and the centres painted with flower heads. The author further notes that pieces with a floral design to the centre are rare. Variations of the yanghong ( Western Red ) rose-red range of coloured enamels were favoured by the Qing Court and introduced with falangcai (enamel colours) from Europe. This type of low-fired glaze was derived from colloidal gold and has variations of bright pink, purplish red and rose pink and is mentioned in Tang Ying s famous Taocheng jishi bei ji, Commemorative Stele on Ceramic Production, of 1735, where they are referred to as Western red-glazed wares. The rose-pink is perhaps the most striking colour among the yangcai wares. -1???(??) ?????? ????????? ????:???????????1996???????????????,??????????? ????? ??,?????????????????? We believe with all these bowls the foot rim was ground down at the time it was made, after it had been glazed. We understand the foot rim was generally polished a little bit at the time of making, otherwise there would be traces of pink enamel left on the foot rim. The foot rim may well be in original condition but we leave it to buyers to determine.
