A LEAF-SHAPED AGATE TRAY, MUGHAL-STYLE, QING DYNASTY
清代痕都斯坦式瑪瑙葉形盤

China, 18th-19th century. Delicately carved in the form of a curved leaf with ridges extending from the midvein towards the crenulated edge, attached to a handle carved as a daisy borne on a curved stem. The translucent and transparent stone of a creamy-white tone with fissures and cloudy inclusions. Agate objects of such translucency and thinness are extremely rare.

Provenance: Collection of Eirik Labonne, and thence by descent in the same family to the last owner. Eirik Labonne (1888-1971) was a diplomat, who served as the French ambassador to Spain during the Civil War and to the USSR during World War II. He was also resident general of Tunisia between 1938 and 1940, and resident general of Morocco between 1946 and 1947.
Condition: The handle with a small old repair, the edges with some small losses, all visible on additional images on www.zacke.at. Minor wear. The stone with natural fissures, some of which may have developed into small hairline cracks over time. Given the extreme fragility of the material, this must be considered as excellent condition and fully commensurate with age.

Weight: 61.6 g
Dimensions: Length 19.4 cm

Auction result comparison: Compare a closely related Mughal-style white jade leaf tray, dated to the 18th century, at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in Fine Chinese Ceramics & Works of Art on 8 October 2010, lot 2864, sold for HKD 187,500, and another dated to the 19th century at Sotheby’s New York in Fine Chinese Ceramics & Works of Art on 17-18 September 2013, lot 158, sold for USD 11,875.

清代痕都斯坦式瑪瑙葉形盤
中國,十八至十九世紀。瑪瑙盤雕刻精美,成彎曲的葉子狀,葉脈貫穿整盤,邊緣成鋸齒狀,葉柄雕刻成一朵雛菊。乳白色調的半透明瑪瑙,帶有脈理和絮狀內含物。 這種半透明極薄的瑪瑙製品極為罕見。

來源:Eirik Labonne收藏, 保存在同一家族直至最後一任持有人。Eirik Labonne (1888-1971) 曾是一名外交官,在內戰期間擔任法國駐西班牙大使,並在二戰期間擔任駐蘇聯大使。 他還在 1938 年至 1940 年間擔任突尼斯駐地將軍,並在 1946 年至 1947 年間擔任摩洛哥駐地將軍。
品相:葉柄上有一個舊時小修復,邊緣有一些小缺損,細節可見 www.zacke.at 上的附加圖。輕微磨損。帶有天然紋理的石料,隨著時間的推移,其中一些可能會發展成細小的裂縫。 考慮到材料的極度脆弱,這件拍品可以説是品相極好,與年齡完全相稱。
