A pair of dragons serve as the handles of this exceptional Chinese covered bowl. The intricate piece is crafted from a rare type of pale green jade known as "celadon" jade. This nearly translucent material is carved to beautiful effect in the present piece. Standing atop an equally intricate carved wood base, it is a stunning example of the artistry of jade sculpture.

Jade has been known in China as the “royal gem” since as early as 3000 B.C.E. Its value comparable with that of gold and diamonds in the West, jade was used not only for the finest objects and cult figures but also in grave furnishings for high-ranking members of the imperial family. A significant part of China’s spiritual and cultural development for centuries, jade is associated with merit, morality and dignity.
