Description

EXTRAORDINARY, Elegantly carved Nephrite Talisman vase, with a conical lid and ornate finial. A discus body, with a masterful carving encircling the outer surface. A breeze blown cherry blossom tree within a lush garden creates the central depiction. The neck of the vase is vaulted upward from the voluptuous bottom half to eventually form an elliptic opening. Wispy leaf-shaped handles flank both sides of the neck and connect to the verges of the vessel. Two free ring jade ornaments dangle from either side of the vase. The stone is an attractive pale-celadon hue with a clean even tone. Lighter golden russet inclusions makeup several areas.


Dimensions: 292.1mm H x 145.95mm W

LOT NOTES:

Jade, as a stone, has five virtues. Its glossiness and warmth is like benevolence. Because inside and outside is the same, so that knowing the outside one knows the inside, this may be likened to righteousness. Its far-reaching sound (when struck) may be heard from afar, like wisdom. It is not easily bent, but can be broken, which may be likened to courage. Jade can be sharpened, but not to the point where it can injure people; this quality is like self-regulation or restraint.
