    A PALE CELADON AND RUSSET JADE 'BOYS' WASHER
    QING DYNASTY (1644-1911)
    The washer with shallow rounded sides rises from three bracket-lobed feet to an incurved rim. It is carved to the exterior with two boys forming the handles, depicted clinging on the rim as if to clamber over to peek into the bowl. The softly polished stone is of a pale celadon tone with russet inclusions.
    6 1/4 in. (16 cm.) across the handles
