Lot Essay


The shape and decoration of this well-carved jade jue are based on bronze prototypes. The decorative band on the present jue is very similar to that of a bronze jue, dated early Western Zhou, illustrated by Wu Zhengfeng in a line drawing in Shang Zhou qingtong qi (Shang and Zhou Bronzes: Inscriptions and Images Album), vol. 17, Shanghai, p. 15, no. 08443, where one can see the same arrangement of two rows of scrolls between borders of circles.
