Qianlong Mark & Period Jade Boxes #7286c
A couple of beautiful little pieces of workmanship, this pair of diminutive round covered jade boxes are finely crafted and bear the Qianlong mark incised on the reverse of each. The painstakingly hand-polished surfaces are indicative of Imperial shop workmanship, the aesthetic and design spare in order to showcase the time and talent it took to create these near -perfect little objects. There is no extraneous details or flourishes to distract the eye from the simple beauty of the form and material. Measuring 2″ x 1″ and bearing the Qianlong mark (1736-1796) and in very good condition. Ex-collection of the James Graham Gallery, N. Y. (1915-1991).
