One of our absolute favorites, this gorgeous jar features great color and masterful carving. There is sexy, sensuous vining and placement of flowers. The masterful use of the celadon color variegation results in a very, very pleasing composition. The proportions of this jar are "spot on" as well. (Note: often referred to as a vase rather than a covered jar).
The flower on the upper right and part of the base shades to celadon green.
It has very deeply recessed, ringed base. The jar stands 5 1/2" high x 3 1/2" wide.
We bought this as red jade. As we can only say for 100% sure that it is hardstone we are not guaranteeing this as red jade. Without specialized testing tools we cannot provide such a guarantee. We can tell you with 100% surety however, that we have seen a very similar one to this sell at auction for significantly more money than this one and it was not in as good condition.
The overall condition is super-excellent. There is one small leaf point that is chipped as shown in the photo with the black star near the chip.
