A CHINESE WHITE JADE BOY GROUP PENDANT QING DYNASTY (1644-1911)
A ruyi-shaped pendant carved both sides in low relief. The front showcases a group of four boys bringing good tidings, with one holding a foliage spray, one riding a horse, one playing a horn and one beating a gong. The back features the Chinese idiom ji xiang xi bao (bringing good news) in seal script within a perimeter border, out of which the Eight Auspicious Symbols including the jewelled parasol, the golden fish, the lotus, the endless knot, the Wheel of the Law, the dhvaja banner, the right-turning white conch shell and the treasure vase can be seen. The stone a pale white tone. This sophisticated, delicately crafted piece is simply a great collector's item.
