Lot 375. An exceptional very pale green jade vase and cover, Qianlong period (1736-1795); H. 54,2 cmEstimate: € 20,000 - €30,000. Result: € 60.000. Courtesy Nagel. 

ProvenanceImportant South German private collection, assembled between 1950 and 1987.

Note: The present vase is particularly noteworthy for its fine quality of jade stone. The process of its carving on the exterior and the hollowing of the deep interior would have entailed a significant amount of wastage of the prized stone, making this vase an exceptionally prized object. As such, it would have probably adorned the interior of one of the imperial palaces or the home of a high-ranking official.
