The lingzhi fungus, Ganoderma lucidum, was considered the most important of all medicines and a talisman for luck. It is also associated with the virtues of a ruler. Classical texts such as Shangshu DazhuanBaihu Tong, and Ruiying Tu all consider the growth of lingzhi an indicator of good government. The lingzhi motif, commonly found on imperial wares, represents a visual rebus for the wish for longevity, and a virtuous and benevolent rule.


Compare a larger white jade lingzhi washer attributed to the Yongzheng to Qianlong period, from the collection of Sir Quo-Wei Lee, sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 3rd October 2018, lot 109; and another celadon jade washer formerly in the Sui Yuan Zhai Collection, sold at Christie's London, 11th May 2015, lot 23. 


靈芝乃百草之首,被視為瑞草;靈芝亦被古籍記載為歌頌聖君賢王德政之仙草。《尚書大傳》曰:「王者德先地序,則芝草生」;《白虎通》曰:「德至山陵,則景雲出,芝實茂」;《瑞應圖》曰:「王者敬事耆老,不失舊故,則芝草生」。宮廷器物中多見靈芝題材,除了表達長壽安康,也顯示了聖王德政之美意。
