A rhinoceros horn libation cup. 17th/18th century

Carved as a large open leaf issuing from a jagged branch curled around to form the stem and base, and from which two smaller leafy branches emerge laden with ripe peaches and pomegranates which continue into the interior, opposite a large chilong which pulls itself up to the rim of the cup from the far side. 6 5/8 in. (16.8 cm.) long, wood stand.

Provenance: Acquired in New York in 1941.

Christie's. Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art. 17 September 2008. New York, Rockefeller Plaza
