This carved nephrite jade tubular form with animals and Chinese characters (probably a poem), is likely an archaistic tribute honoring an earlier period. It dates from the Qing Dynasty, 1800s. It measures 2 inches high, 2 inches in diameter and is 1/4 inch thick. The color is a medium grayish celadon of even tone. It weighs a substantial 153.2 grams. Fine condition with no chips or cracks. Display stand NOT included.
I have been collecting and selling jade for many years. This is part of my collection that was verbally authenticated by the San Francisco Asian Art Museum in 1974.
