清末 / 二十世紀 翠玉花耳活環蓋爐


Lucite stand (3)


Height 5 in., 12.5 cm 

There appears to be a hairline crack to one side of censer from rim to well (however, the line is totally internal to the vessel's wall and does not reach surface of the walls – possibly just a natural flaw in the stone). Otherwise in good condition with no breaks or nicks to the openwork. The censer is more yellow in color than the cover.


口見一分叉細沖,器身另一側見一長綹紋延長至器底。蓋雕花見一處小缺損。器身玉材相較於蓋更泛黃。
