Why this is a
Masterpiece

The inner turquoise side of the bowl is decorated with four figures of running horses (three are yellow and the fourth one is white) among clouds and flames. Under the horse's hooves, there is green and white ground. In the middle of the inner bowl space there are four white sceptres and four red ribbons combined with them. The outside of the bowl is decorated with green Fo lions. This bowl is one of the oldest objects of enamel in our museum.

History of the Object
Cloisonné enamel techniques were probably brought from Persia to China’s Yunnan Province during the Yuan Dynasty. It was especially popular during Jingtai Emperor (1450 – 1456) from Ming dynasty, and then during the Qing Dynasty and Qianlong Emperor. Cloisonné enamel decoration consists of coloured glass paste applied to metal vessels and contained within enclosures made of copper.
