Lot Essay

The present vase belongs to a group of jades naturalistically carved as fruit, flowers or vegetable groups, and hollowed to form receptacles for use as vases, brushpots, waterpots and other decorative vessels. Several examples of jade lingzhi-form vessels are known. One carved on the exterior with the wufu flittering amidst smaller lingzhi sprays, formerly in the collection of Colonel J.B. Sherwood, was sold by Sotheby's Hong Kong, 16 May 1989, lot 94. Another larger example was sold by Christie's New York, 22 March 2007, lot 122.
