notes

This exquisite vase belongs to a small group of Qianlong blue wares with gilded decoration of which four examples, all of different shapes and decoration, are illustrated in Zhongguo taoci quanji, vol. 15, Shanghai, 2000, pls. 89, 91 and 92, from the Qing Court collection and now in the Palace Museum, Beijing, and pl. 90, in the Shanghai Museum. See further three examples of vases painted in gilt on a blue-ground, also from the Qing Court Collection, published in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum. Monochrome Porcelain, Hong Kong, 1999, pls. 75, 86 and 94. In its decoration and painting style, the present vase compares most favourably to the vase mentioned above, ibid., pl. 75, which is also painted with the Eight Daoist Emblems and the lotus scroll design.

The technique of decorating in gilt on blue-ground continued to be favoured by Qianlong's son, the Jiaqing emperor, and pieces made under Jiaqing's tutelage retained many of the characteristics of Qianlong designs. See a blue-ground gilt decorated Jiaqing vase of closely related form but painted with qilong dragons amongst lotus sprays and with dragon-form handles sold in these rooms, 8th April 2007, lot 510. Compare also a blue-glazed Jiaqing vase of ovoid form with a slender neck and 'garlic' mouth, densely painted with lotus scroll and bajixiang decoration in gold, illustrated in Gunhild Avitabile, From the Dragon's Treasure. Chinese Porcelain from the 19th and 20th Centuries in the Weishaupt Collection, London, 1987, p. 28, pl. 16. Avitable, ibid., p. 28, notes that Buddhist texts were written in gold on blue paper. Gold and blue therefore had a special significance.
