Seven nephrite miniature carvings
The first a white jade female figure, possibly Guanyin, seated in 'royal ease' but without identifying attributes; the second a reticulated pendant in the form of the Daoist boy divinity Nezha, holding rings in his hands and balancing a wheel between his feet, the pale grey-green matrix displaying some russet stains and patches of dark grey; the third a pale celadon reticulated plaque of three boys holding up the peach of immortality, the matrix showing pinpoint black inclusions and russet staining in natural fissure lines; the fourth a pale celadon turtle supporting the reticulated crane of longevity on its carapace, the matrix retaining some pale russet-stained depressions of the boulder's original skin; the fifth celadon nephrite paperweight deeply undercut as a fantastic feline with russet-stained snout, reticulated tail and legs crawling on a rectangular plinth; the sixth a monkey seated on the back of a recumbent horse of highly polished greyish matrix with oatmeal colored patches and some sepia staining; the seventh a pendant of thinly sectioned and evenly colored grey-green matrix reticulated as a dragon coiled atop an archaistic axe head.
