Following on from the success of Part I in New York in March and the record-breaking first Hong Kong chapter in April, the carefully curated sale presents six masterpieces from the 18th century showcasing the unparalleled technical mastery in the imperial kilns in Jingdezhen, including a group of enamelled porcelains formerly from the Fonthill heirlooms which have not surfaced the market in around half a century. Highlights include a Qianlong magnificent and possibly unique ruby-ground yangcai ‘trigrams’ reticulated vase, corroborated by the court archives to have been made either in 1743 or immediately thereafter. The vase is a tangible testament to the unprecedented and unparalleled culmination of technical virtuosity in porcelain production between 1741 and 1743, fuelled by an imperial reprimand from the Qianlong Emperor.

 

上承年初吳權博士典藏專場在紐約香港兩地接連取得驕人佳績,今秋香港蘇富比很榮幸能續呈美器,包括盛清御製瓷器及工藝佳作,誠鑑藏雅士夢寐良機。首推清乾隆御製洋彩瓶,巧奪天工,夾層、鏤雕、交泰、轉旋集匯一身,以中國禎祥紋樣,搭襯西方巴洛克風圖案,且配色艷麗,紫紅明黃妙相合,隙地錐剔鳳尾卷草錦紋。據錄燒製於乾隆八年(1743年)或即後數年,時皇權正盛,御窰發展更是攀峰登極。
