Description

Qialong Cloisonné Tri-Mouth Gourd Vase Qing Dynasty, Qianlong Period with Mark


This is an important Qianlong cloisonné tri-mouth gourd vase, a type common during the Qianlong period. Embellished with shining gilt ridges, the vase is decorated with Fu (the bat which symbolizes good luck; shou (longevity); and bao shuan hua (the Buddhist auspicious flower). These motifs are embellished with intertwining European style flowers. Such European floral patterns were introduced to China during the late Yongzheng to the early Qianlong period, and were used primarily for decorating porcelain wares. The object is decorated in great detail, a quality of Qianlong imperial wares. The bats have large eyes, long black mouths, and finely detailed wings. A clear four word imperial mark is within double squares on the outer base.


PROVENANCE: Dr. Robert I. Lin, brought to California from Taipei in 1960s.


清乾隆福壽纒枝寶相花紋紫腰帶銅胎三口大葫蘆瓶。三口葫蘆瓶是乾隆常見的造型,主要是瓷胎(見"故宮博物院藏文物珍品全集"琺瑯彩粉彩部份,第133頁。ISBN620752244),此瓶銅胎較少見。此瓶繪中國傳統的"蝠"與"壽"參在洋花及寶相花間,彩色鮮艷典雅。這種洋花是乾隆時仿西歐的紋飾。蝠(福)繪填得仔細,雙巨眼尖黑嘴及背翅的細節都描出。由於兩百多年的老化,器表琺瑯彩釉己失去光亮,腰部紫帶下邊緣稍有銅銹。其他露出的銅稜脊因有鎏金保護仍然金光閃閃。外底心在雙方框內書乾隆年製二行楷款。三孔(口)葫蘆瓶是乾隆特有的器型、瓷胎較多、銅胎掐絲琺瑯較少。此瓶彌足珍貴。
