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.

    Yongzheng period? Difficult to tell until you provide clearer and sharper images of the motifs? All the focus is on the background instead of the object in question. May be a little far-fetched to call this Hetian Jade. Could you use natural lighting instead of shining strong light right at the piece? Even if it is Hetian, pretty low quality material in my opinion.
