CUHK Art Museum

清宮藏莫臥兒王朝之玉器及琺瑯器

In addition to the Forbidden City’s collection of well-known jade ware from India, there are also three Indian-made enamel vessels decorated with precious stone inlays. The vessels were a gift from the 6th Panchen Lama to Emperor Qianlong to honour the Emperor’s 70th birthday. This lecture will explore how these jade and enamel ware came to China via Central Asia and Tibet.
