Catalogue Note

Pendants of this type were created during the reign of the Qianlong and embody the numerous artefacts closely based on archaic jades and bronzes that were created to satisfy the Emperor's penchant for the antiques. As a matter of fact, these are often inscribed with a Qianlong cyclical date. Compare for example a dated example from the Qing Court collection and still in Beijing, published in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum. Jadeware (III), Hong Kong, 1995, pl. 127; See also another sold in these rooms, 27th April 2003, lot 3, and included in the exhibition A Romance with Jade from the De An Tang Collection, Palace Museum, Beijing, 2004, cat. no. 21; another in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, is illustrated in James C.S.
