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

The photos are an integral part of the description.

    Le lot a été envoyé en le 14/08 par Bpost. Il faut noter que le 15/08 est férié en Belgique. J'ai répondu à l'acheteur mais il est trop pressé. Je ne suis pas 24h/24h sur mon ordinateur. Patience!

    请专业人士进行了鉴定,浸入热水后玉雕深色部位马上出现褪色,文物权威专家表示这是现代化学制剂染色伪造品,不可能是卖家的祖父1936年购于亚洲。不诚信的卖家不应该推荐。

    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.

    ? Je ne comprends pas cette évaluation neutre. Joan Miro - Personnage et Animaux a été décrit correctement. Cette description a été réalisée par une grande maison de vente sur Paris!

    De vaas was heel smerig van binnen en stonk vreselijk. Ik heb hem redelijk schoon gekregen maar daardoor is de verflaag beschadigd aan de binnenkant.

    Faux! Le Vase a été lavé avant la mise en vente. Ce vase a servi, il date des 1920, il ne saurait pas être impeccable. Les photos montraient TRES bien son état.

    Het kavel werd na de betaling zeer vlug verzonden. Het kunstwerk was vakkundig ingepakt en is goed aangekomen.
    Wij zijn zeer tevreden.

    Met vriendelijke groeten,
