Lot details

China, 19th century. The bowls well carved with elegantly rounded sides rising from short circular feet to incurved rims, each flanked by a pair of double loose-ring handles pendent from reticulated designs of blossoming chrysanthemums issuing from foliage. The translucent stone of a pale lavender tone with pale green shadings and bright emerald-green and russet streaks.

Provenance: From a private collection in New York, USA.
Condition: Very good condition with minor wear, possibly few minuscule smoothened losses to exposed areas. Natural inclusions to the stone. The wood stands with some wear and light scratches, some of the separately carved feet are loose.

Weight: 231.6 g and 211.2 g (each excl. stand)
Dimensions: Width 18 cm (each)

Each bowl with a matching wood stand. (4)

Expert’s note: Mughal-style marriage bowls carved from jadeite are extremely rare and this particular pair is exquisitely made from a superb material of beautiful color. The exceptional quality of the stone and the carving, showing a relatively restrained form of decoration, indicate a rather early dating for jadeite carvings, no later than the mid/end of the 19th century.

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.
