Lot Overview

瑪瑙質,半透明,色澤純正。壺呈扁瓶形,直口,豐肩,橢圓形圈足。掏膛纖薄勻稱,琢工精細,器形盈巧典雅。壺體利用瑪瑙天然色層,一面以天然深褐色留皮巧雕,棕黑色處琢為兩隻喜鵲同棲於梧桐枝上,鵲鳥回眸高鳴,寓意有喜。古人認為喜鵲為報喜之鳥,如能於早晨聽見牠們的叫聲,當天就會有喜事降臨。

瑪瑙鼻煙壺常以紅、白、綠、黃、黑等色較多,巧雕是利用瑪瑙質地的自然分層,巧妙安排並憑著高超的技藝所琢製,然使其各部位自然呈現不同顏色,富有情趣,又稱之「巧作」或「俏色」,題材多見於人物、動物和鳥禽等,形象生動逼真,匠心獨運。本品整體巧色巧雕,猶似「花落春猶在,鳥鳴山更幽」之意境,集詩畫、雕藝於一身,實乃秀美之佳作。
