Lot 613. A blue and white bowl with Immortals, Qing dynasty, Kangxi (1662-1722). Width 21 cm. Estimate 3 079 € / 3 849 €. Lot sold 5 432 €© Bukowskis

A rare and finely painted octagonal lobed bowl – in varying tones of under glaze blue – with the eight spreading panels being identical in size - all above a design of petal motifs. Around the inside of the rim, there is a band of diaper ground pattern within which are eight oval reserves, each containing one of the “ Eight Precious Things “. The short lobed foot rim is thick and the base is glazed - displaying a six-character apocryphal Chenghua mark within a double circle. Each side of this richly decorated bowl is painted with a representation of the “ Eight Immortals of the Wine Cup “ – a group of Tang Dynasty poets who were also known for their love of alcohol.
