A PALE YELLOW JADE FIGURE OF A CAMEL, MING DYNASTY
明代青玉留皮駱駝

China, 1368-1644. Naturalistically carved, the recumbent camel depicted with its well-defined legs tucked neatly under its body and its head turned backwards towards its finely incised tail. The superbly polished, semi-translucent stone of a pale greenish-yellow tone patches and veins of russet and streaks of milky white color.

Provenance: Collection of Pietro Accorsi. The property of a gentleman in the United Kingdom, acquired from the above. Pietro Accorsi (1891-1982) was a famous Italian collector and dealer of fine art and antiques. The Accorsi - Ometto Museum in Turin, the first decorative arts museum in Italy, originated from his collection which was left to the Fondation Pietro Accorsi after his death.
Condition: Superb condition with only minor old wear.

Weight: 158.2 g
Dimensions: Length 8.3 cm
