I am pleased to offer this rare antique Chinese jar fresh from a local estate of high end antiques. The porcelain is lovely.. a famille rose on jaune (yellow) ground. The design is of a pink flower with prominent stamen. Not sure of species. Very rare fitting with a genuine piece of carved jadeite as the finial on the hand hammered brass lid . The ornamental apple green jade piece is finely carved and features a symbol in medallion on either side. I appreciate the handmade nature of the piece as the jade is set in a brass ring that is just slightly out of round and the jade tips a little to one side. It is simply marked China in red on the bottom and there is another curious mark with what I believe is a Buddhist symbol in red on the inner rim of the top.. A red triangle with a bindu dot in the center. I have read that this is symbolic of male/female or ying yang. I am not sure if this is an artist signature. The jar measures 4 3/4" high with finial while the porcelain piece measures 3" high by 3" in diameter. This dates to the late Guangxu period sometime between 1891 and 1908. It is in excellent condition and presents beautifully. Really stunning in person. A rare opportunity to add something unique to your collection of Chinese antiquities.
