Description
A LARGE SPINACH-GREEN JADE 'DOUBLE CARP' GROUP, QING DYNASTY

Nephrite of a pure and deep spinach-green tone accentuated with intense russet inclusions on the head of the upper carp, and some white and russet streaks on the reverse.

China, Qing Dynasty, late 18th – 19th century

Meticulously carved in the form of two carps, emerging from tempestuous waves in an upright manner, their undulating tails flattened, their bodies naturalistically carved to simulate an even scaly texture, their heads conjoined, the opaque stone of a deep spinach-green tone with attractive russet streaks.
The present piece is notable for its dynamic and crisply carved depiction of two fish which skilfully capture a sense of movement and power while retaining the fine detail and finished surface that were appreciated by the jade connoisseurs of the Qing dynasty. The robust forms of the creatures and broadly formed waves of water draw attention to the spinach jade stone from which it has been fashioned, a material that was particularly treasured by the Qianlong Emperor.

Shape: Natural boulder form
Dimensions: Height 24,5 cm.
Weight: 4600 grams
Condition: Excellent condition with some natural fissures
Provenance: Christies, London, 15-16 June 1987, lot 331

Literature comparison: Compare with a remarkable yellow jade vase with dragon-carps, the russet tones of the stone cleverly incorporated into the composition, included in the exhibition Chinese Jade Throughout the Ages, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 1975, cat. no. 421; and another of spinach-green jade, illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum. Jadeware (III), Hong Kong, 1995, pl. 49.
