Modelled after large bronze bells and stands created for temples and shrines, this exquisitely carved piece is an example of large scale objects reproduced as a miniature. This practice was much enjoyed by the Qianlong emperor who had a penchant for play things. No other related example appears to have been published, although a large white jade pendant depicting a bell of this form and similarly decorated with archaistic designs and stiff leaves on the lowest register, was sold in our Paris rooms, 9th June 2010, lot 66.

For a bronze prototype, see one of more flared form and cast with dragons and suspended from an ornate dragon-carved wood stand, attributed to the Xuande period (1426-35), sold in our New York rooms, 26th February 1983, lot 547.
