A Guan-type flower-form bowl, Qianlong four-character seal mark in underglaze blue and probably of the period

2013_NYR_02689_1210_000(a_guan-type_flower-form_bowl_qianlong_four-character_seal_mark_in_unde)

Lot 1210. A Guan-type flower-form bowl, Qianlong four-character seal mark in underglaze blue and probably of the period; 4 5/8 in. (12 cm.) across. Estimate USD 7,000 - USD 9,000. Price realised USD 25,000© Christie's Images Ltd 2013

Made in imitation of Song dynasty Guan ware, the bowl has deep petal-molded sides and is covered overall with a pale greyish-blue glaze suffused with black and golden crackle that ends in a neat line of russet color at the foot

Provenance: Fong Chow (1923-2012) Collection, New York.

Note: For a similar, but larger (19.6 cm.), copper-red-glazed ewer that also has an apocryphal Xuande mark, but is dated to the Kangxi period, and is illustrated with a Xuande period prototype, see Gugong cong chuan shi ciqi zhenyan duibi - Lidai guyaozhi biaoben tulu, Beijing, 1998, pp. 123 and 122, nos. 97 and 96, respectively. On the Xuande example one can see that the globular body tapers towards the foot, the neck is shorter and flares more towards the rim, the spout has a more pronounced and longer arch, and the steps of the rim have a more rounded profile.
