Antique Chinese Pale Jadeite Double Demon Rice Bowl
Really striking pale green jadeite bowl adorned with two beast handles that is thought to date to the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE). The material is of amazing quality, light enough and carved thin enough for its opacity to verge on translucence. Has a lovely carving on the side that’s subtle enough that it can be difficult to see in the photos, but is a really nice touch. It’s in amazing condition for its age but does show some wear, however, commensurate with how old it is – some extremely faint scratch marks that may well have been from the individual who made it in the first place. Measures 7 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 2 1/2 inches tall.
