Catalogue Note

The delicacy of the thinly carved and smoothly polished walls of these cups is superb and is reminiscent of fine Qing porcelain. A related pair of winecups, but with rounded rims, in the  Hei-Chi collection, is illustrated in Jades from the Hei-Chi Collection, Beijing, 2006, p. 212 and in the current sale, lot 2039. It is rare to find jade cups and bowls with a countersunk base; see an alms bowl sold twice in our New York rooms, 15th June 1983, lot 112, and again, 19th March 2007, lot 59.
