SUPERB ANTIQUE 18/19C CHINESE QING QIANLONG CARVED WHITE JADE PLAQUE / PENDANT
I may have two days of listings this week so please check again on Friday just in case. I will be selling a very large number of interesting antiques including tribal art, Chinese, Islamic, Indian and European antiques. PLEASE NOTE: This sale is in US Dollars.
This is one of many very fine Chinese antiques I am selling this week so please view my other sales as well. This is a superb Chinese carved jade (guaranteed genuine antique jade and certainly no other hardstone) plaque or pendant which certainly dates at least to the 19th Century but could well be an 18th Century example. It is carved from a single piece of very pale celadon almost white jade with the central design of a Chinese character above a bat and flanked by a dragon running up each side. At almost 3 inches / 7.5cms in diameter it is a very good size and is beautifully pierced and certainly of finer quality than many you see. The whole piece is in excellent overall condition with a very good finish - see condition report and photos below. This is a very fine piece of Chinese art and I am selling it at a very low starting price and with .
** Please note: My photos are taken with a good quality digital camera and my computer is one of the most colour accurate models on the market however there can always be a slight difference between what I see on my computer and what you see on yours and, with jade and hardstone in particular, I would like all my customers to bear this in mind when coming to offer, thank you. Please do not ask for a 'Buy It Now' price as I do not end my sales early. Thank you.
Please read down the entire listing for Dimensions, Condition, Postage & Payment Details - most of the information you will need is here on this page but please get in touch if you don't find what you are looking for.

Postage & Packing
For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 27TH MARCH so please make payment as early as possible. PLEASE be a little patient with the post - I will get them posted asap but I work on my own, often have a fair amount to post and I do pack carefully. I also post in the order that things are paid for.
Any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault. I always post out at the latest 3 working days after receiving cleared payment but sometimes an item is slowed up by a backlog of post or delayed whilst being processed through customs. To give you an idea it generally takes about 3-7 working days within Europe and 9 - 14 working days to the U.S. / rest of the world. If speed is of the essence then I can use a courier (DHL / FEDEX etc.) but prices for couriers start at around £30 / £40GBP for the very smallest object and VERY quickly escalate depending on size, weight and destination. Please note also that there has been a considerable hike in postage prices by the Royal Mail this year. I add on very little, often not enough to cover the packaging materials, so the price I quote really is as fair as possible.
UK: Special Delivery: $13.25 USD.
Europe: Royal Mail international signed for: $19.17 USD. This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country).
U.S and rest of the world: Royal Mail international signed for: $24.04 USD.This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country) and insurance. Please do not ask me to falsify customs documents, thank you.
Where possible I will of course combine shipping for multiple purchases (however if, for example, you win a walking stick and a box of some description this wouldn't be very practical!).
***Any import duties or taxes applicable are payable by the Buyer. Please enquire with postage queries, requirements or any other questions you may have prior to offerding.***
Payment Details (Important: Please Read)
Rest Of The World: PayPal only.
In the event of a recorded/traceable and insured item going missing in the post I will do everything in my power (provide proof of postage and evidence of value, etc.) to assist in obtaining a full refund from the postal service involved.
***Finally, thank you for taking a look at my sale and please have a look at the other antiques I am saleing this week including a rare Native American Indian Northwest Coast grease bowl; a very fine and early Maori wahaika club; several very fine Chinese jade carvings; some rare Zulu knobkerries and staffs; some good pieces of treen including figural snuff boxes and fine coquilla nut carvings; Tibetan silver cups; Iroquois and Plains beadwork; a very fine Derbyshire bluejohn vase; rare type Zulu snuff spoons and combs; Napoleonic prisoner of war domino boxes; a superb and large Huron quillwork / moosehair on red trade cloth box and many more interesting antiques from around the world.***
