Another extra special bottle that our fellow collector Pin shared. The "thousand word" classical text is painted by LI Ruchen with a beautifully shaped bottle of upright rectangular form, and sloping shoulders. Congratulations Pin !

Greetings,

I'm posting a few pics of the bottle which led me to your forum.  I, like many of you, have read the Lilla S. Perry book, and used it to try and find out the artist of this bottle.  When I thought I found the match, I googled the name and that's  how I happened upon y'all.  I'm curious if I am correct in assuming that it is a Ye Family or Elder bottle?  And, I'm wondering if
someone can help me with the translation also? 

Happy Friday,


Rheuben

You may need to take a couple closer pics for the scripts for one of our Chinese members to translate for you..

Congratulations on a wonderful bottle Smiley

Hi Rheuben

Very nice bottle... and not a theme that YZS always paint.....I have a much smaller bottle that has only a fraction of the scene painted as compared to yours... just the old lady, the little girl and a woman...

The bottle is from Chapter 2 of the Story of the Red Mansion .... 第二章 贾母惜孤女...... (Chapter 2 : Mother Jia (a surname) showing love and concern to the orphan girl).... the orphan girl will be the most famous character in this Chinese classic, her name is 林黛玉, Lin Dai Yu

I can't figure out all the words as the picture is not that clear... but can see these 4 words on it 母惜孤女

George and Pin,

Thanks for your comments regarding this bottle. I'm attaching some more pics that hopefully will clarify the calligraphy.
Cheers,

Rheuben

Pin,

YAY for the translation on this Ye bottle!  I'm so excited to know the story.
If I were to try and catalog this bottle for my records, would you consider it square shape with rounded corners? it is
2 3/4" tall.  I keep seeing references to the Bob Stevens book so I think I shall order it.

Thanks again for your assistance regarding this bottle, it was one from my grandmother's collection.

Cheers,


Rheuben.

You are welcome..... a really nice bottle

As for how to classify your bottle... Joey and the rest will probably be better to advise you..
