Lot details

China, 1736-1795. The two domed halves modeled in the form of a pouch and intricately carved in openwork with a central shou character amid lotus blossoms and lingzhi, attached to an old silk tassel with two matching jadeite beads.

Provenance: Swiss trade.
Condition: The jade in very good condition with minor wear and few tiny nibbles. The wood stand with a minor old repair near the top but otherwise in very good condition and with a superb, naturally grown patina overall.

Weight: 23.7 g (the pomander with tassels and beads) and 659 g (the wood stand)
Dimensions: Length 5.3 cm (the pomander) and 44.5 cm (the stand)

With a finely carved hardwood stand, possibly huanghuali, the wood of a highly attractive grain and color, dating from the Qing dynasty. (2)

As early as the Tang dynasty, small pouches holding various hunting paraphernalia were hung from the belts of hunters. The Manchus also used small pouches for similar purposes, but after settling in China and pursuing a more leisurely life, the pouches became smaller and were used to hold aromatic herbs. This jade 'aromatic pouch' is based on contemporary Qing dynasty silk examples. For further discussion of this form, and an illustration of a number of embroidered silk, as well as deer skin examples, dating from the Qing period, see the exhibition catalog, G. Wong and E.K. Goh (eds.), Imperial Life in the Qing Dynasty - Treasures from the Shenyang Palace Museum, China, The Empress Place Museum, Singapore, 1989, pp. 98-9.

Literature comparison: For a similar pomander, dated to the Qianlong period, see Chinese Jade Throughout the Ages, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, 1975, cat. no. 465. A related pouch-shaped jade pomander with a Qianlong mark and of the period in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, is illustrated in the Catalogue of the Exhibition of Ch'ing Dynasty Costume Accessories, Taipei, 1986, p. 249, no. 232.

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.
