A fine and rare white jade brush rest of a phoenix and chick
Qianlong
The fabulous long tailed bird and its chick standing on a long branch of fungus, their wings and tail feathers deeply undercut in sinuous curves that complement the various fungus heads emerging from a long gnarled branch that forms the base of the sculpture, the translucent matrix displaying some milky white inclusions, and polished to a soft lustre on all surfaces.
14cm (5 1/2in) long.
