A PALE YELLOW AND CELADON JADE WASHER, MING DYNASTY
明代青玉筆洗

China, 1368-1644. Of circular form, the gently curved sides with a neatly incised circumferential key-fret band within a raised border, the translucent stone of a pale yellow and celadon tone with russet veins and cloudy white inclusions.

Provenance: From the collection of Pauline Lederman, New York, acquired circa mid-1960s, and thence by descent in the same family.
Condition: Excellent condition with minor wear, the stone with natural fissures, some of which may have developed into small hairline cracks over time.

Weight: 92.6 g
Dimensions: Diameter 6.4 cm (at the rim), Width 7.2 cm

Auction result comparison: Compare a related but larger celadon jade washer, incised with a floral band and of arguably lesser quality than the present lot, at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in The Muwen Tang Collection of Chinese Jades, on 1 December 2016, lot 94, sold for HKD 87,500. Also compare a closely related pale yellow jade washer, with a similar central circumferential band, but with archaistic dragons in the form of C-shaped scrolls, dated to the early Qing dynasty, at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art on 8 April 2014, lot 3031, sold for HKD 1,720,000 (together with a metal spoon).

Your bid limit will be the maximum amount you can bid during the auction. Your bid limit is for the hammer price and is not affected by the buyer’s premium and VAT.  For example, if you have a bid limit of €1,000 and place two winning bids for €300 and €200, then you will only be able to bid €500 for the rest of the auction.
