China. The stoneware bottle of rounded rectangular form, with a cylindrical neck, and tapering to a recessed oval foot, enameled in blue and reserved on each side with a recessed panel, finely carved and decorated in opaque colored slips, one side depicting a pair of Pekinese dogs, and on the other a pair of doves. The coral stopper finely carved with a bat.

Provenance: From the collection of Bob C. Stevens, no. 336. Sotheby’s Honolulu, Fine and Important Chinese Snuff Bottles from the Collection of Bob C. Stevens, Part I, 7 November 1981, lot 69. Rachelle R. Holden, New York, acquired from the above. Bob C. Stevens was an enthusiastic collector of Chinese snuff bottles who published an important book on the subject, The Collector's Book of Snuff Bottles, in 1976. In 1978, a part of his collection was exhibited in Tokyo at Mikimoto Hall. Rachelle R. Holden (1934-2020) was a famous collector of Chinese snuff bottles. She purchased her first bottle in 1974, finding the subject fascinating as it combined all the classic forms of Chinese art, and would continue to passionately collect them for the rest of her life.
Condition: Magnificent condition with minor old wear, light surface scratches, very few touched-up glaze flakes and microscopic pits.

Stopper: Carved coral (minuscule age cracks and chips to stopper)
Weight: 44.1 g
Dimensions: Height including stopper 71 mm. Diameter neck 16 mm and mouth 6 mm.

The Daoguang Emperor and his consort were fond of doves and small dogs, respectively, as subjects of paired doves and Pekingese dogs became popular during this period. The symbolism imbued in the pairs of dogs and doves implies a wish for happy marriage.

The dove-and-dog Yixing bottles were made in sets and in several different series. One of the finest versions of all is seen in the present lot, with its rounded rectangular shape, blue surround and multi-colored slip decoration. The slip is both painted with a brush and plastered on and carved, or at least manipulated with a blade of some sort. This is the same technique as that of the Slip Master (see for example Moss, Treasury 6, lots 1448–1451), but it is a quite different, more evolved style, with a number of different colors of slip used almost like enamels. This is typical of artistic evolution in the snuff-bottle arts, where a simple idea, drawn initially from the painting style of the literati with its predominance of monochrome ink painting, evolves to a more complex style as the possibilities of the medium are explored. These bottles with their more intriguing designs and multiple colors may be the later wares by the Slip Master, perhaps with a son taking over, or they may be from a different workshop, although we are inclined towards the first option. The bulk of the known examples probably date from the earlier part of the Daoguang reign, although the type may have remained popular throughout the reign. As a rule, however, it is not likely that an Imperial type remained fashionable for thirty years without noticeable changes in style.

The dogs and doves on this series are always extremely well depicted, full of life, and the limited range of colors of slip available to the carvers are very thoughtfully and effectively used. While the form remains reasonably constant, and the subject matter is always the same, there are several different compositions within the series. Either each was made as an individual composition of the same theme, or each series was redesigned. Two more are illustrated in Stevens 1976, as nos. 334 and 336, both equally well worked. Between them, however, is a rare example (no. 335) with an enameled design of the same subject, still with the blue surround, that is quite poorly painted, even by the decorative standards of Yixing. The painted version may come from a time later in the reign when the enamel workshop responsible for so many earlier bottles was beginning to show signs of decline.

Yixing in Jiangsu province gives its name to this distinctive stoneware. In production for nearly a thousand years in the same place, Yixing ware only came into artistic prominence in the later Ming dynasty, when it was adopted by the literati class as a suitable material for teapots and thence for other items for the scholar's studio. Slip-decorated snuff bottles constitute a considerable portion of the known output. Slip is simply liquid clay which can be applied like a thick paint or used for gluing segments together.

Stevens 曾是一位中國鼻烟壺知名收藏家,曾出版過一本書The Collector's Book of Snuff Bottles(《鼻烟壺收藏手冊》),1976年以及1978年。書裏曾記錄過這件拍品。他的藏品的一部分曾在東京Mikimoto Hall(御本廳)展出過。Rachelle R. Holden(1934-2020年)是著名的中國鼻烟壺收藏家。 她於 1974 年購買了她的第一個鼻烟壺,從而發現了鼻烟壺其迷人之處,因為它結合了中國藝術的所有經典形式。之後,她持續不斷地收集鼻烟壺。

道光帝及其妃子非常喜愛鴿子和小狗,這一時期開始流行成對的鴿子和北京哈巴狗。成對的狗和鴿子的象徵著幸福婚姻。

因此雙鴿及雙犬成為道光時期較為流行的紋樣。整器選料講究、紋飾豐富,色感清新靈動,造型秀麗,二次加釉,工藝複雜。雙鴿雙犬嬉戲栩栩如生,造型典雅別緻。為清代道光一朝南方進貢宮廷的紫砂煙壺上乘之作。此類宜興紫砂加彩鼻烟壺是成套的,有幾個不同的系列。這類鼻烟壺是先製成紫砂胎,再在紫砂胎上點釉彩繪,有的通體掛釉,也有的局部掛釉,然後送入紅爐以低溫燒制而成。這是鼻烟壺藝術的典型藝術演變,最初從以單色水墨為主的文人畫風中汲取的簡單想法,隨著對媒介可能性的探索,演變為更複雜的風格。大部分已知的例子來自道光早期。

這個系列鼻烟壺開光中的狗和鴿子刻畫細膩,生動活潑。 雖然細節處理方面不同,但主題始終相同。另外兩個鼻烟壺參見Stevens(1976 年),見編號334 和 336,都同樣出色。 然而,有一個罕見的例子(編號335),同樣主題的琺瑯設計,仍然帶有藍色掛釉,以宜興的製作標準來說,畫工並不特別。彩繪版可能來自道光後期,當時其琺瑯作坊開始出現衰退跡象。

江蘇宜興以出產宜興紫砂出名,歷時近千年,直到明朝後期才開始藝術化,當時它被文人階層所採用,適材料,進而成為文人工作室的其他物品。

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.
