Flowers in vivid colors including peonies, lilies, and chrysanthemums are set against a brilliant red enamel ground. The petals and veins of leaves are depicted in fine outlines and soft colors demonstrating the craftsman’s excellent painting skill. This porcelain exemplifies the technical perfection of Qing dynasty court artisans who surpassed their predecessors in technical skill. The bowl bears a mark on its base reading “Made for Emperor Yongzheng 雍正御製.” The Yongzheng emperor was one of the three early Qing emperors whose taste greatly influenced art production and collecting.
