AN EMBELLISHED ‘PICKING LOTUS’ AGATE BOX, QING DYNASTY
清代“戯蓮”瑪瑙彩盒

China, the box 1750-1850, the embellishment by the Tsuda family, Kyoto, Japan, 1890-1941. The translucent agate of an even caramel tone, with a smooth surface finish, the embellishments skillfully carved of soapstone with various natural colors and further decorated with lacquer and gold. The cover with a noblewoman and her two servants in a small boat amid a lotus pond. While one servant is rowing, the other is about to pick a large lotus blossom. The base with a Qianlong seal mark.

Provenance: From a private estate in New York, USA.
Condition: Overall, superb condition. The stone with natural inclusions and fissures. Minor old wear to lacquer. Note a natural erosion to the stone inside the lid, which has over time developed into a cavity, and was cleverly covered by an embellishment.

Weight: 135 g
Dimensions: Length 9.5 cm

The sides neatly decorated with butterflies, insects and birds in flight amid billowing clouds.

The original Chinese box has all the features of a Palace product of the Qianlong or Jiaqing periods: The pure stone, the flattened oval shape, the faceting of the rims and the raised oval foot are all typical.

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.
