Chinese Jade, Gilt Bronze Objects, and Buddhist Carvings Available With Jumbo Auction HouseNov 27, 2021 15:00 EST
The Chinese Qing dynasty period was known for the glorious reign of Emperor Qianlong. Completely fascinated by jade, he both collected and commissioned a massive number of jade objects. Gilt bronze and jade flourished not only in the imperial court but also among commoners. A carved jade Buddha Shakyamuni statue from the Qianlong period is a key highlight of the upcoming Jumbo Auction House sale. The sculpture depicts the Buddha seated cross-legged in his classic meditative Padmasana pose or lotus position.
Another significant Buddhist lot from the Qianlong period is a hexagonal palace hut, intricately carved in gilt bronze. A set of three jade round table screens from the same period also leads the listings. The table screens bear carvings of the Buddha and two Bodhisattvas. Each one of them is mounted on an intricately-carved wooden base. An available Chinese cloisonné vase is noteworthy for its enamel details.
