Why this is a
Masterpiece

Imperial objects with a yuzhi mark are rare. These objects were made “by Imperial Command”. The Kangxi Emperor (1662-1722) invited enamel specialists from the West to help further develop enameling techniques in China. This bowl is testament to the new types of enamels being produced in China during the first quarter of the eighteenth century.

History of the Object
When this piece was purchased by Mr. McElney in 1968, Western scholarship of Chinese porcelain found the design and colours of these types of bowls to be too radical for porcelains of the eighteenth century. They were thought to be nineteenth century imitations.
