On offer is this exquisite Antique Chinese Qing Dynasty 1850-1880c. Carved Peking Glass Multi Color Lidded Jar featuring carved in high relief Bats with Cranes and smaller Bats flying among clouds with leaves circling around the top and lip of the jar and the lid.
Carved so superbly and such high skill that you can see each feather on the flying Cranes and every toe on the Bats and Cranes. The white opaque Peking Glass is the perfect backdrop for the dark brown and steel blue overlays making them stand out. There are also Chinese ideograms inscribed beneath the Bats and on both sides of this amazing piece of Chinese history. This is one of the finest pieces of multi color hand carved Peking Glass that I have ever seen. The jar is in excellent antique condition and it has retained it's glossy glass finish. Measuring 5 Inches in height x 3 inches wide. A fabulous example of the superb carving skills employed in creating such lovely pieces. From my personal collection and now offered for you to enjoy.
