永和宫之翠玉白菜The jadeite cabbage of Yonghe Palace

永和宫位于东六宫,光绪大婚后为瑾妃居所,直至她于1924年9月24日去世止[1]。说起永和宫和瑾妃,少不了要提及翠玉白菜,台北故宫三宝之一。据说翠玉白菜为瑾妃的嫁妆,查遍资料,全无证据佐证。惟有清室善后委员会1925年发布的《故宫物品点查报告》证实翠玉白菜曾存在于永和宫屋内玉壶中而已[2]。台北国立故宫博物院展品说明称翠玉白菜发现时种在“海棠花形小琺瑯盆里“[3]

The Yonghe Palace is located in the east six palaces. After Guangxu’s wedding, it has been the residence of the Imperial Concubine Jin until her death on September 24,1924 [1]. When people talk about the Yonghe Palace and the Imperial Concubine Jin, it is necessary to mention the jadeite cabbage, one of the three treasures of the National Palace Museum in Taipei. It is said that the jadeite cabbage was a part of dowry of the Imperial Concubine Jin, unfortunately, there is no evidence to support it. Only “the Palace items auditing report” issued by the Caretaker Committee of the Qing Dynasty Imperial Family in 1925 confirmed that the jadeite cabbage had existed in a jade pot in the Yonghe Palace [2]. However, according to the introduction of the exhibits of the National Palace Museum in Taipei said that the jadeite cabbage was found “in a Begonia flower shaped enamel pot” [3].
