Lot Overview

紙鎮呈長方條形,銅胎,鎏金邊框,形制規整。主體以寶藍色琺瑯釉為地,嵌絲龜甲錦地,內繪棗花紋。中心巧飾鎏金螭龍為鈕,更顯奪目耀眼。螭龍獨角,梭形眼,獅鼻,身軀上拱如橋耳,脊骨畢露,四肢粗壯,尾向兩側分叉,矯健遒勁,靈活欲動,極富動態美感。

紙鎮是文人書房不可缺少的用具之一,最早文字記錄為南北朝時期,《南史.垣榮祖傳》:「帝嘗以書案下安鼻為楯,以鐵為書鎮如意,甚壯大,以備不虞,欲以代杖」。又宋張鎡詩:「三山放翁寶贈我,鎮紙恰稱金犀牛」。多為長方條形,也稱作鎮尺、壓尺,既可壓平書頁,又是文玩之物,閒暇間把玩掌中,可助文思泉湧,堪稱文房「第五寶」。清代紙鎮在承襲前朝風格上有所創新,隨工藝技術進步,裝飾趣味濃郁的紙鎮開始出現,可謂集觀賞性與實用性於一器。清宮舊藏,北京故宮博物院庋藏清〈嵌掐絲琺瑯銅鎮紙〉(圖一),與本品皆以掐絲琺瑯製作,並巧飾鎏金螭龍為鈕,可資比對參考。細觀本品,掐絲纖細規整,古樸文雅,螭龍姿態虯曲高雅,彰顯尊貴之姿,龜甲錦地為「多壽」意涵,實為文房珍玩中的精細之作。
