Lot details

China. Finely carved to one side with a scholar and his boy attendant walking along the mountain toward a neatly incised waterfall, and to the other with an attendant playing the qin near a pavilion above a group of scholars near a stream, one kneeling and holding a bucket, his attendant standing behind him carrying a large stick, the other two standing in front of a small cascade, all set in a monumental mountainous landscape with several beautifully carved pine trees. The translucent stone is of a pale celadon tone with distinct russet veining and patches, as well as scattered cloudy inclusions.

Provenance: From a Swiss private collection.
Condition: Superb condition with minor old wear, possibly microscopic nicks, the stone with natural inclusions and fissures. The matching wood base with old age cracks, minor nicks and losses, and fine naturally grown patina overall.

Weight: 877.3 g (incl. base), 804.2 g (excl. base)
Dimensions: Height 18.9 cm (incl. base), 16.4 cm (excl. base)

With a matching wood base of the same period, finely carved with craggy rockwork, pine, bamboo, and chrysanthemum. (2)

Expert note: The present jade mountain is carved all around to show a continuous scene, with the waterfall on one side of the mountain and the cascade on the other stemming from the same source. Such jade mountains with no preferred side are extremely rare.

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.
