The Property of a Channel Islands Trust
A rare Imperial white jade circular table screen
The circular panel intricately worked on both sides, depicting Shoulao holding a peach and his attendant, approached by four of the eight Immortals, Zhang Guolao, Han Zhongli, Lan Caihe and He Xiangu, set within a rocky deeply worked landscape with pine, wutong trees and low lying clouds, reversed by a similarly rocky scene depicting two bats in flight by five fruiting peaches borne on leafy stems from a large gnarled tree, with turbulent water flowing below, the stone of an even white tone, with some cloudy-white inclusions and minor russet skin showing to the sides, wood stand.
21.2cm (8¼in) diam. (2).
