Well potted with slightly flared sides resting on a countersunk foot, the exterior applied with a rich red glaze, the interior and base glazed in white, the base inscribed in underglaze blue with six-character Yongzheng mark within a double circle. The use of copper-red glaze at Jingdezhen was reintroduced by the Kangxi Emperor with the wish to reproduce classic Ming sacrificial red (jihong) porcelains. At the end of the Kangxi period the use of copper-red was revived in a variety of ways to achieve different glaze effects and was perfected during the Yongzheng reign. A related example is illustrated in John Ayers, 《Chinese Ceramics in the Baur Collection》vol. 2, Geneva, 1999, pl. 256; and another is published in Regina Krahl,《Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection》, vol. 2, London, 1994, pl. 826. Bowls with a countersunk foot are scarce. See a closely related bowl with Yongzheng mark, illustrated in 《Meiyintang Chinese Ceramics ll》 , London 1994, page 183, pic. 825. Also see two sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong 29 April 1992, lot 71,and 31 October 1995, lot 420.PROVENANCE: From a Asian private collection
