Lot details

China. The zhadou has a wide everted rim carved on top with lotus flowers within a ruyi-head border and incised on the underside with leafy lotus sprays below ruyi heads, all above the slightly rounded sides carved with hexagonal floral diaper. The domed cover is carved en suite around a circle of petal lappets at the base of the semispherical imitation-amber glass finial. The interior and base are entirely covered in black lacquer.

Provenance: From a noted French private collection.
Condition: Good condition with old wear, expected age cracks, few losses, some nicks here and there. Fine, naturally grown patina overall.

Weight: 174.0 g
Dimensions: Diameter 14.6 cm

Expert’s note: The Sanxitang (Three Treasures Hall) was a private study of the Qianlong Emperor. It was so named because it was used to house his favorite three pieces of calligraphy, “Timely Clearing after Snowfall” by Wang Xizhi, “Mid-Autumn” by Wang Xianzhi, and “A Letter to Boyuan” by Wang Xun. The hall also houses a closely related zhadou along with a number of other important scholar’s objects made during the period.

Literature comparison:
Lacquer zhadou with covers of this type appear to have been carved with various decorations, and have rims of various shapes. One carved with the sanduo and dated to the Qianlong period is illustrated by S. Kwan in Chinese Lacquer, Hong Kong, 2010, pp. 290-91, no. 103. Also illustrated, page 290, is a photograph from the Sanxitang in which a similar zhadou and cover are shown. Another related example carved with flower scroll, dated 18th century, in the Shenyang Palace Museum, is illustrated by R. L. Thorpe in Son of Heaven: Imperial Arts of China, Seattle, 1988, page 96, no. 28.

Important Changes to Our Terms and Conditions

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

For further reading about non-payers at auction, go here: https://www.zacke.at/aboutnonpayers/.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
  • A Guarantee Claim, however, can only be raised after the purchase price has been paid in full by the buyer and within 45 days after the auction day.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at office@zacke.at.

By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms of Auction and Terms and Conditions.
