Qing, A Fine Set of Gilt Bronze and Cloisonné Enamel Scholars Garniture
The set of scholar’s garniture are all elaborately decorated with writhing front-facing five-clawed dragon with the Wan Character picked out in vivid yellow, pursuing a ‘flaming pearl’ amidst multi-colored ruyi clouds against a bright sapphire-blue ground, above rolling waves and a terrestrial diagram from which issues various beribboned auspicious symbols, all within a gilt border. Inkstone Warmer and Cover: This pattern is similarly repeated on the four sides of the rectangular box, with the two dragons on the longer sides picked out in tones of an attractive sea-green. It is connected to a pedestal supported on a gilt stand with bracket-shaped aprons, delicately decorated with floral scrolls. The base is gilt and cast with a Qianlong four-character mark. The box originally contained a shallow tray to hold ink stones. Hot water or ashes of hot coal would have been placed within the box below the tray in order to keep the ink stones warm, preventing the ink from freezing during the cold winters. It is now missing. Brush Holder: Formed as a five-point mountain of slightly crescent section, enamelled on each side with two front-face dragons amidst dense ruyi clouds above cresting waves issuing auspicious treasures. Brush Washer with Ladle: Of cylindrical drum shape with shoulder decorated with floral scrolls and the body with confronting dragon. The base is similar to the warmer. The ladle is decorated with scrolling tendrils with the Wan character and a dragon head arched handle. Weasel Bristle Pen: The pen tube is decorated with scrolling blossoms with reign mark on the base. A large weasel bristle head. There are identical examples in the Palace Museum, Beijing and the National Palace Museum, Taipei, although both of these have their original shallow trays holding the ink stones. The warmer belongs to an original set of cloisonné enamel stationery comprising the brush rack, water receptacle and ink stand. The Beijing example is illustrated in Gold, Silver, Glass, Enamels, Zhongguo meishu quanji, vol. 10, Beijing, 1987, pl.333; and Enamels 3: Cloisonné in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), Compendium of Collections in the Palace Museum, Beijing, 2011, pl. 48 (fig. 1). The Taipei example, together with the complete set of stationery, are illustrated in Enamel Ware in the Ming and Ch’ing Dynasties, Taipei, 1999, pl. 53.
