This remarkable collection showcases 30 lots of Ming and early Qing dynasty jade, jadeite, lapis lazuli and agate carvings. It includes a wide variety of vessels such as brush washers, bowls, boxes, censers and vases and is headlined by a finely-carved spinach-green jade reticulated brush pot from the Qianlong period (1736-1795). Amongst the most unusual works of art are an exceptionally rare set of greenish-white jade eight Buddhist emblems, bajixiang, from the 18th century and a pair of greenish-white jade Imperial reticulated hat stands from the Qianlong period. The collection was assembled in Europe in the late 1960s and 1970s and many works were acquired from the leading London dealers of the day including John Sparks, Bluett & Sons and Spink & Son.
