Description
A 17th / 18th CENTURY CELADON AND RUSSET JADE 'BUDDHIST LION'CARVING

Pale celadon color jade with russet inclusions, smooth surface polish
China, 17th / 18th century

This jade pebble is carved in the shape of a Buddhist lion, in a recumbent posture. The beast has its head turned to grasp its own tail and thereby reveals a reticulated fang. The face with the bulging eyes, flared nostrils and wavy ears is expressively captured. At the curve of the tail and between the front paws are two small reticulated areas, for suspension.

Shape: Figural rounded shape with reticulation
Dimensions: 3,4 cm (height), 7 cm (length), 4,8 cm (width)
Condition: Good condition with extensive hand patina
Provenance: Collection of Erik Hancock; original label on the underside

Literature comparison: Christie's, Fine Chinese Ceramics & Works of Art, 7 November 2017, London, lot 26 (for a comparable celadon and russet jade carving of a Buddhist lion, slightly larger in size)

十七至十八世紀青玉雕獅子
青玉帶沁,表面光滑
中國,十七至十八世紀

這件玉山子雕刻成獅子臥姿。 它的頭回轉抓住自己的尾巴,從而露出牙齒。眼神生動,張開的鼻孔和波浪形的耳朵,匠人準確地捕捉住臉部表情。在尾部和前爪之間的曲線處有兩個小的網狀區域,用於懸掛。

形狀: 隨形而雕
尺寸:3,4 x 7 x 4,8 cm (高x長x寬)
品相良好, 包漿細膩
埃里克∙漢科克Erik Hancock 收藏,底部可見收藏標簽原件
文獻參考:佳士得《中國精美陶瓷與工藝品》,2017年11月7日,倫敦,26號拍品 (一件可相似的青玉帶沁獅子,尺寸稍大)
