Fine C1900 Chinese Carved Carnelian Agate Lidded Vase Jar W Openwork Wood Stand:
For sale we have here a fine c1900 Chinese carved carnelian agate small lidded vase or jar on its original custom openwork hardwood stand. This jar is of a very high quality carving done in a colorful carnelian agate stone with good details and old hand polish produced in China sometime around the turn of the century or c1900 and I think it could even be the late 19c. I have had a good number of old agate carvings and these earlier ones can be very impressive as this one with the wonderful high sheen polish and the fine details as can be seen in the tiny birds because on close inspection one can even see the feathers and beaks along with long stemmed flowers, leaves and branching. The main color is a reddish orange with black, white and darker orangeinfusions. The stand is also a superb piece showing the delicate complex openwork of the shaped panels and the curving top edge of the key boarder making this small stand quite a complicated piece of work. Condition is excellent with only one tiny petal missing from one of the open flower heads but is hardly noticeable and other than that both the vase and the stand are wonderful with no other faults. Sizes: Jar..Height 4" x Width 2-1/2" x Thickness 1-3/4" x Total Height with stand 5" Here is a wonderful opportunity for the collector to own a hard to fine early gate vase carving of the highest standard.
