I just came across this pair of Yongzheng marked lime green cups sold at Skinner auctions:
I find it rather interesting how shape of these as well as the circular Yongzheng reign marks fits perfectly with the description from the Sotheby's catalogue in the link I posted
Quote: "Two lime-green cups of slightly different proportions and with the more common circular Yongzheng reign mark in Taipei are published in the Illustrated Catalogue of Ch'ing Dynasty Porcelain in the National Palace Museum, Republic of China. K'ang-hsi Ware and Yung-cheng Ware, Tokyo, 1980, pl. 153; and in the exhibition catalogue Qingdai danse you ciqi tezhan, Taipei, 1981, pl. 44; another pair of that type with circular mark was included in the exhibition Shimmering Colours. Monochromes of the Yuan to Qing Periods: The Zhuyuetang Collection, Art Museum, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 2005, cat. no. 113; and a single cup was included in the Exhibition of Ancient Chinese Ceramics, Kau Chi Society of Chinese Art, at the same museum, Hong Kong, 1981-2, cat. no. 136."
And then combined with the fact that there was at least one more unidentified Yongzheng mark and period piece in that sale. At least judging from the price that was paid for it:
Almost makes me wanna make a trip to the library to look through the books mentioned by Regina Krahl...
