A CHINESE WHITE JADE BELL-SHAPED PENDANT
QING DYNASTY (1644-1911)
The stone a pale white tone with shininess. The pendant displays essential parts of an ancient Chinese bronze bell, including the niu, wu, mei, zhuan, zheng, sui, gu and yu. The section between the niu and wu is pierced with phoenixes in opposing postures. Incised lines are employed to indicate the mei, zhuan, zheng and sui. Serrations along the edges represent the mei on both sides. The gu is undecorated. The bottom is crafted in the shape of an arch typical of the yu. This pendant exemplifies the strong interest in archaistic jades in the Qing Dynasty persisting from the Song Dynasty.
