'HE TIAN' JADE SNUFF JARLET
He Tian' jade temple jar shape, with eight cicada shields delicately carved below a continuous frieze of eight carved diamonds each with a centred knob, a wide short neck with flat lip, flat foot with shallow concave base, the matching top is caved with same diamond pattern with centred knobs topped with a large finial. 48mm
I aquired this little pot in Hong Kong in 1976, I was told it is probably from the Yongzheng period 1723 -1735. It is a lovely little pot very tactile and cool to the touch. The stand I bought later.
