Sculpture of a dragon - China - 2nd half of the 20th century

Superb traditional sculptures in jadeite jade.

Pixiu is a Chinese mythological creature, considered as one of the nine sons of the dragon, and often used as an amulet in pendants made of jade.

Condition: these two stones have not been analysed by a laboratory but are part of a private collection of more than 200 pieces all supposed to be jade.

Private collection started in 1950 by my late husband.

The origins of the different pieces of the collection of my husband: Chinese market, auctions, antique dealers...

Size:
Pixiu: 70 mm x 22 mm x 65 mm
Dragon: 69 mm X 19 mm X 55 mm

Total weight: 215 g

    Les vases sont des copies et pas en pâte de verre! Catawiki a délibéramment changé la description du vendeur afin de faire monter les enchères! Vous n'êtes pas honnète, c'est de l'arnaque!

    "perfect condition"? Nein, Gebrauchsspuren. Und dann steckt das Werk ohne Schutz und Fixierung in einem Versandrohr - nachlässig.
