A RARE ROCK CRYSTAL 'HORSE' SEAL, MID-QING

Lot 0037 Details

Description
A RARE ROCK CRYSTAL 'HORSE' SEAL, MID-QING
China, 18th century. Of square form, surmounted by a horse standing foursquare with the head turned to the side, looking down toward the uncarved seal face, the mane and tail neatly incised. The transparent stone of good clarity and quality with natural inclusions and golden speckles.

Provenance: From an old Austrian private collection and thence by descent within the same family to the present owner.
Condition: Good condition with minor wear, few small nicks to seal base.

Weight: 297 g
Dimensions: Size 9.8 x 4.5 x 4.5 cm

With a padded silk box and cover. (2)

Although the horse is a zodiac sign and a popular motif in Chinese arts, there are only few examples of Chinese seals with horses. Thus, the present seal must be considered as rare.
