Lot 42
 

42

A LINGBI STONE SCHOLAR’S ROCK, GONGSHI, QING DYNASTY
清代靈璧供石

China, 1644-1912. Of upright irregular form, reminiscent of a crashing wave. The dark areas of the stone are interspersed with characteristic white striations.

Provenance: From a private collection in the United Kingdom.
Condition: Presenting very well with fine old wear and scattered soil encrustations. One segment of the stone neatly reattached, showing associated old fills.

Weight: 1,203 g (the stone) and 1,293 g (incl. stand)
Dimensions: Height 19.3 cm (excl. stand) and 21.7 cm (incl. stand)

With a carved and fitted hardwood stand of irregular form supported on five feet. (2)

Auction result comparison: Compare a closely related lingbi stone, also dated to the Qing dynasty and with similar characteristic white striations, but carved with an interior well, “presumably to function as a brush washer”, at Christie’s New York, in The Ian and Susan Wilson Collection of Scholar’s Objects, on 17 March 2016, lot 1197, sold for USD 40,000.

Your bid limit will be the maximum amount you can bid during the auction. Your bid limit is for the hammer price and is not affected by the buyer’s premium and VAT.  For example, if you have a bid limit of €1,000 and place two winning bids for €300 and €200, then you will only be able to bid €500 for the rest of the auction. If you try to place a bid that is higher than €500, you will not be able to do so.
