A magnificent imperial spinach jade table screen
The circular panel worked with a scene of Shoulao and an attendant by the water's edge welcoming Xiwangmu, holding a peach, arriving on a phoenix, the design executed in various levels to impart a sense of depth with trees and rocks in the foreground and buildings recessing into the distance, reversed by a scene of two deer by a pavilion in a garden setting with a lingzhi sprig growing in the foreground, the mottled green stone with some black flecks, accompanied by an ornately-carved reticulated pieced wood stand. 21.7cm (8 1/2in) diam. (2).
