An exceptional white jade plaque
Suzhou, mid Qing dynasty
The exquisite white pebble of extreme clarity and translucency, tinged with attractive russet-brown spots, intricately worked with young attendants depicted guiding aged scholars in appreciation of nature, the younger figure depicted ecstatically leaping in joy with his head raised looking upwards, worked on one side with a bird in flight amidst wispy clouds, the reverse with finely worked pine trees amongst a mountainous landscape.
