    清早期 青玉雕福壽雙全桃擺件

    玉色青白,玉質溫厚,局部帶有黃褐色斑紋。以整塊玉料雕雙壽桃,雙桃結於壽枝之上,壽枝分叉成小樹枝又蜿蜒盤繞於壽桃四周,上開桃葉,葉身細長,邊緣捲曲,樹枝紋理,頁面葉脈及葉面蛀洞亦作細緻雕刻。每顆壽桃上各停一隻蝙蝠,寓意「福壽雙全」或「多福多壽」。

    該玉雕來自英國收藏家羅浮•坎利夫勳爵(Lord Rolf Cunliffe, 1899 – 1963)。羅浮勳爵是二十世紀中葉英國最有影響力的第二代中國藝術收藏家之一。他的藏品一般都經過當時業內知名人士及顧問的挑選,前後陸續收藏了共400餘件中國藝術品。羅浮勳爵的最後一批藏品曾與2002年11月11日在倫敦邦瀚斯拍賣,其中包括三件成化瓷,轟動一時。
