Title: Important 18th Century Ceremonial Qianlong gui vessel Ming-Qing Dynasty

Age: Ming-Qing Dynasty (I'm 75% sure it's qianlong period)

Size: 7.25" across the handles end to end (18cm) Length - 4.4" (11cm) diameter excluding handles.

Introduction: I am extremely proud to offer this vessel among the other fine jades I'm selling. The provenance, extremely high quality and rarity makes this an item not to be missed. An extremely fine Celadon Jade Gui delicately carved with thin walls and robust broad handles, coming from the prestigious collection of “Madame G” who's Chinese art collection sold for An Emperor's ransom in sale houses all over the world.

Her collection has been exhibited in the MIN CHIU SOCIETY OF HONK KONG EXHIBITION (catalog number 29) she also acquired items from THE FAMOUS COLLECTION of DR. IP YEE WHICH SOLD IN SOTHEBYS HONK KONG 1984. Also she's exhibited form her collection at THE ORIENTAL CERAMIC SOCIETY OF HONK KONG, BLUE AND WHITE OF 1975 (see item #NO49).

Description:

This jade vessel borrows it's shape from much prized ancient ceremonial wares. This vessel is a wonderful example and represents the renewal of interest in archaic wares starting in the Song dynasty (960 – 1279 A.D.) and moving on until it's peek during the Qianlong reign in 18th century Qing dynasty China. Although the form is from the Ming Period, the fact that the round foot underneath is so precise and fine and also the fact that the stone is carved so thinly and evenly to an even perfection borrowing from moghal style jade carving suggests this piece is probably from the Qianlong period and based on these attributes a likely date of around 1760-1780 is fair.

This very fine vessel is carved with an outwardly flared rim, a sharp and sturdy raised foot and handles carved with stylized dragon masks in typical form and handles are finished at the bottom with a square block. One of the most impressive elements to this particular piece is the delicacy care and precision with which it was carved. Although the outside is carved with a flared bulbous body undulating from top to bottom the precision of the carving doesn't change and a consistent thickness of approx 2mm is maintained throughout the interior of the vessel.

A slightly different colour favors one side and I believe that this difference in colour results from the burning of incense or some other ceremonial use and I believe the fact that this item has evidence of ceremonial use makes it much more exciting. I can't stress the meditative precision that was required to consistently carve jade so delicately and precisely as we see in this example.

An absolutely sublime example of jade carving.
