White Jadeite, Chinese Workmanship
Late Eighteenth Century
Length: 6.5 inches (16.51 cm)
This thinly worked jade covered censor exemplifies the floral Chinese Mughal style. The three-legged Koro is accented with delicate openwork acanthus flower handles supporting loose ring handles. Another openwork acanthus flower forms the cover finial. In our opinion the subject matter, workmanship and fine material suggest this Koro is a fine example of the late eighteenth century Chinese workmanship.
Reference Number 2193
