Lot details

China, 8th-3rd century BC. The disc is neatly decorated in low relief with archaic motifs of s-scrolls, interspersed by four evenly spaced mythical beasts with dragon heads and fish bodies, showing neatly incised scales and tail fins, all between slightly raised borders. The translucent stone is of a pale celadon to russet and dark brown tone with areas of semi-opaque calcification.

Provenance: From the private collection of Irene and Wolfgang Zacke (1942-2022). The couple has been active in the art trade for well over half a century and were one of the first in Austria to offer Asian works of art in their gallery, starting in 1968. Since the late 1980s, they have been collecting ancient Chinese jades, building an extensive and multiply published collection over the decades.
Condition: Very good condition with some old wear and minuscule nibbling here and there. The stone with natural inclusions and fissures, some of which may have developed into small hairline cracks over time. Signs of natural weathering and erosion, surface alterations.

Weight: 138.3 g
Dimensions: Diameter 12 cm

Literature comparison:
Compare a related Eastern Zhou jade disc from the Myers collection, with altered areas and a similar design, published in Fillippo Salviati, Radiant Stones: Archaic Chinese Jades, 2004, Hong Kong, no. 82. A similar example but only carved on one side in the Palace Museum Collection, Beijing is illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum, Jadeware (I), 1995, Hong Kong, p. 126, pl. 104.

Important Changes to Our Terms and Conditions

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

For further reading about non-payers at auction, go here: https://www.zacke.at/aboutnonpayers/.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
  • A Guarantee Claim, however, can only be raised after the purchase price has been paid in full by the buyer and within 45 days after the auction day.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at office@zacke.at.

By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms of Auction and Terms and Conditions.
