A BUDDHA’S HAND JADE CARVING, QING
China, 18th century. Finely carved in openwork to depict a finger citrus with the long tendrils of the fruit supported on a leafy stalk base. The stone of celadon color with whitish and russet inclusions.

Condition: Excellent condition.
Provenance: The Durwin Tang Collection of Chinese Jades. Old labels to backside

Weight: 97.1 g.
Dimensions: Height 9.6 cm.

Note that this may both serve as a pendant and a small vase, because it has been quite well hollowed out inside for this purpose, but a wooden stand would have to be added as the vase does not stand on its own.

Auction result comparison: Compare with another Buddha’s Hand finger citrus carving, which may also serve as a vase and a pendant, but with its matching wooden stand, sold at Sotheby’s New York, on September 16th, 2014, in Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art, lot 272.

Nachverkauf:  € 1.100
