78

A JADE FIGURE OF A RECUMBENT DOG, SONG DYNASTY
宋代玉雕臥犬

China, 960-1279. The hound reclining with front paws stretched out under the head, well carved with incised rib cage, tail swept to one side, almond-shaped eyes, the ears laid back. The translucent stone is of an intense russet tone variegating to deep amber along with celadon and yellowish-gray shadings, black speckles, and cloudy white inclusions.

Provenance: English private collection.
Condition: Very good condition with minor wear and few minuscule nicks, the stone with natural fissures, some of which may have developed into small hairline cracks over time.

Weight: 34.6 g
Dimensions: Length 6.8 cm

The motif of a hound is usually associated with fidelity, high rank, and status in Chinese culture. Early representations of jade dogs were probably linked to the identity and aspirations of particular individuals. For example, jade hounds may have been worn by hunters. See J. Rawson, Chinese Jade from the Neolithic to the Qing, London, 1995, page 366, pl. 26:10.

Auction result comparison: Compare a closely related jade hound, dated Song to Yuan dynasty, with similar russet shading, at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in Fine Chinese Ceramics & Works of Art on 7 October 2010, lot 2797, sold for HKD 350,000, and a related jade carving of a recumbent dog, also with similar russet shading and dated to the Song dynasty, at Bonhams Hong Kong in The Songzhutang Collection of Early Jades from the Neolithic Period to the Yuan Dynasty on 30 May 2017, lot 57, sold for HKD 375,000.
