Beautiful Antique Chinese Qing Dynasty Celadon Jade Libation Cup For Sale

Beautiful Antique Chinese Qing Dynasty Celadon Jade Libation Cup

A beautiful AntiqueChineseceladon jade libation cup, dating to the Qing dynasty, 18th/19th Century.

Carved from a boulder of celadon jade, the depiction is one of a large flower, possibly a magnolia, with multiple fronds, branches and blossom around the sides and base.The handle to one side takes the imaginative form of a young boy climbing to the top of the giant flower, as if to peer over and see its contents.

Libation cups such as the present example were common from the Song Dynasty and were a status symbol and a display of wealth. Ming Wilson (Chinese Jades, 2004, p.41) speculates that such vessels would have been placed on shelves around the house to impress visitors. She also suggests that such jades may have been regarded as portable wealth akin to gold ingots. The corrupt minister Yan Song (1480-1565) had 311 jade cups, which were all confiscated by the state when the Yan fell from power (ioffer).

Length:5 3/8 inches.

Condition: Excellent condition, unrestored.

Provenance:

From a private North American collection, acquired in the 1930's.
