Panel with “hundred antiques”


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 221

The “hundred antiques” pattern became popular in China in the seventeenth century. It often features antiques, ornamental vessels, and scholar’s accessories in various media, resulting in a colorful, playful surface. Here, spinach jade represents an ancient bronze tripod with green patina, while cloisonné mimics both an archaic bronze pattern on the left and a contemporary porcelain pattern on the right.
