Inscribed to one side in underglaze blue with a horizontal, six-character, Kangxi reign mark below the rim and of the period.

Provenance: From Mrs. Hwang in the San Francisco area, inherited from her grandfather, Zou Dianbang. Zou Dianbang was a successful Chinese businessman from the Guangzhou province, where he held the post of chairman of the Guangzhou Banking Association and the chairman of the Guangzhou General Chamber of Commerce. He became a millionaire in his 20s and applied his financial acumen to the support of certain key political figures, including Sun Yat-sen and Hu Hanmin, despite his personal lack of interest in politics. In 1928, Zou Dianbang founded the Beiyuan Restaurant, whose ‘pick and fry’ methodology, using ingredients from their nearby vegetable garden, has long associated his name with Cantonese cuisine. A Kangxi marked doucai jardiniere was sold at auction by Christie’s New York on September 15th, 2011, Lot 1549. A wucai jardiniere with Kangxi 6-character mark was sold at auction by Sotheby’s Hong Kong on June 1-2, 2015, Lot 683.
A similar wucai jardiniere from the Kangxi period but on celadon ground can be found in the Palace Museum, Beijing. It is illustrated in _Selected Porcelain of the Flourishing Qing Dynasty at the Palace Museum_, Beijing: Forbidden City Publishing House, 1994, pg. 80 (fig. 1).
