A JADE AND GILT-BRONZE ‘WUFU’ OPIUM PIPE, QING DYNASTY
清代鎏金玉烟槍

China, 18th-19th century. The pipe constructed from three pieces of celadon green jade, all with a fine and smooth polish. The bowl holder made of gilt-bronze with a neatly incised depiction of five bats ‘wu fu peng shou’ amid scrolls of clouds in high relief. The bowl itself made from Yixing ceramic and with a silver fitting and painted inscription on top.

Provenance: From an old French private collection. By repute, this has been in the same family for a long time.
Condition: Excellent condition with minimal nicks and losses here and there, old wear and traces of use. Good patina and some natural impurities and fissures to the mineral.

Weight: 665 g
Dimensions: Length 46.3 cm

Exquisitely cast and incised with highly accurate depictions of bats against a punched and chased ground, the metalwork is quintessentially Yongzheng in character. Elegant and unassuming at first glance, it exhibits the highest skills of the craftsmen in their ability to successfully control the temperamental fire gilding, while hinting at China’s glorious metalwork tradition and conveying portents of good fortune.

Intended Spend and Bid Limits

When you register to bid in an online auction, you will need to share your intended maximum spending budget for the auction. We will then review your intended spend and set a bid limit for you. Once you have pre-registered for a live online auction, you can see your intended spend and bid limit by going to 'Account Settings' and clicking on 'Live Bidding Registrations'. 

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 €10,000 and place two winning bids for €3,000 and €2,000, then you will only be able to bid €5,000 for the rest of the auction. If you try to place a bid that is higher than €5,000, you will not be able to do so.
