    Fiftieth Anniversary Exhibition

    4 November - 30 November, 2010

    Twelve Masterpieces of Chinese Art, of Porcelain, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Stone, from the 10th century BC to the Yongzheng reign (1723-1735).

    Famille rose porcelain 'peach' bowl

    Qing dynasty, Yongzheng mark and of the period, 1723 -1735

    This bowl demonstrates perfectly the fineness and delicacy of overglazed enamelling achieved during the Yongzheng reign.  The pinks, greens, browns and reds are applied after the bowl has been glazed and fired and are fired again at a lower temperature.  The subject here, bats circling round peaches, is a classic combination full of auspicious associations.
