Stunning Translucent Lidded White Jade Vase, Qing

Lot 0012 Details

Description
Translucent white jade
China, Qing dynasty (1644-1912)
Tapered ovoid shape, with accentuated foot and knobbed lid
Flanked by a pair of elephant mask handles suspending loose rings
Archaic pattern is carved throughout the surface of the body and lid
Height: 13 ¼ in.; 34 cm
Very good condition
Estimate by Auctionata Expert: 11,000 USD

This translucent white jade vase is stunning in two points: the quality of its craftsmanship and the quality of the jade. The stone is evenly white throughout with a subtle hint of celadon. It has a highly polished oily surface further lending to the gleam of the vase. The entire surface of its body and lid are intricately carved in relief with traditional Chinese geometric patterns and motifs in the archaic style, including: taotie masks, dragon shapes, other mythical figures, and clouds. From the neck of the vase arches a pair of elephant mask handles with three-dimensionally carved loose rings. In Chinese, the character for elephant has the same pronunciation as the character for lucky. In traditional Chinese iconography, the elephant is often depicted with a vase on its back, as the word for vase has the same pronunciation as the word for peace. Together, this vase offers a visual example of auspicious peace and beauty.


The overall condition of this vase is very good with minimal traces of age and wear.
