In 1759, the Qianlong emperor ordered a review of the Qing court attire system. The dragon robe, in particular, was only given to those of high rank. It represented the professional attire of members of the military and civil service. The upcoming Ceramics and Works of Art sale, offered by Oakridge Auction Gallery, presents a Chinese blue dragon robe from the Qing dynasty. The decoration on the robe includes dragons, clouds, and mountains.
The sale offers several pieces of carved jade as well. In Chinese culture, jade symbolizes status, wealth, and spirituality. Featured in the auction is a circular white jade plaque with a zitan wood stand. Dating back to the 18th century, one side of the plaque features a landscape with the image of an old man and a young boy. The other side is accented with bird, flower, and rock designs.
