Hetian Jade, Jia Qing Porcelain, and More Wrap Up 2021 at Jumbo Auction HouseDec 18, 2021 15:00 EST
When a man named Bian He found an unusual stone, he presented it to the King of Chu. Believing that it was a scam, the King hewed Bian He’s leg as punishment. A descendant later verified that the stone was indeed jade. To honor the wronged discoverer, the jade was named Hetian jade. Jumbo Auction House will soon offer precious jade artifacts in the first session of its 2021 End of the Year Private Collection sale. An antique Chinese Hetian jade sculpture will be available in the auction. It shows men rowing a boat atop a dragon-like wave. It also comes fitted with a carved wooden stand.
Among the porcelain offerings, an antique square-shaped plate depicting five dragons and four phoenixes is a notable lot. It bears the mark of Jia Qing. It also has four dog-shaped handles for string tying. Another key porcelain lot is a uniquely curved pillow in a light jade green glaze. It belongs to the Chinese Cizhou Yao period. There are nearly 600 lots of fine and decorative art, furniture, snuff bottles, jewelry, watches, and collectibles in this holiday auction.
