Late 19th or Early 20th C. Carved Jade Urn

$2,650

About

This fine jade urn of a lovely spinach color running to a deep yellow is carved to resemble a pair of Buddhist lions or mythical beasts conjoined back to back resting upon clawed feet. The body of the urn is covered in a single low relief Archaistic Toa Tie mask so constructed as to resemble modified wings and volutes consistent with many Chinese artistic elements found in jade carvings throughout the ages. The urn may have had a lid but now does not and has a fully finished rim and interior so there may have never been a lid. The whole is them raised up on a nice made to fit the piece rosewood stand in fine condition. The urn and stand bear a paper label stating that it was once a part of a single-owner collection.
