Description

A Chinese iron red enamelled 'shou' cup

Qing dynasty, Daoguang mark and period

With a short straight foot rising to gilded foliate rim, painted to the exterior with shou characters in various fonts, the six-character seal mark in iron-red to base.

6.7cm diameter.

Provenance: the Collection of Mengbi (1888-1970).

Mr. Mengbi (1888-1970) was the grandfather of the present owner. A native of Shunde, Guangdong, he moved to Malaysia in 1906 and founded Malaysia's first integrated rubber factory in 1921, which is still run by his family today. He was very fond of art, so he became an avid collector and associated with literati and artists, amongst whom Wen Yongchen, Xu Beihong and Liu Haisu.
