Chinese White Jadeite [S.G.= 3.09] Beast Afterlife Cup
Beautiful artifact – a white jadeite [specific gravity = 3.09] afterlife beast cup. Shows a small, flat-faced creature crawling up the cup’s side and is adorned with various images and writing on the sides. The engraving is excellent, far more detailed than many such pieces. The finish is not as shiny as you would expect, probably from being underground. It’s in excellent condition with some natural erosion but no noticeable damage. Measures 4 1/2 inches long, 3 1/4 inches wide, and 2 3/4 inches deep.
