Fine Large Chinese Jin Dynasty Stone Tile - Bird (AD 1115 - 1234)
This extremely rare large stone tile dates to the Jin Dynasty (AD 1115 - 1234). The carving is of fine quality and features a bird standing with outstretched wings in a circle, itself within a square panel. It was undoubtedly once part of a series of similar stone panels (indeed we have another from the series, see also our item stock number MA282).
Height 53 cm (20.75 inches), width 48 cm (19 inches), weight 18.05 kg (39.7 lbs). It is in fine condition with no restoration or repair.
Truely of "museum quality": mounted and displayed well with a raking light this tile is very impressive indeed.
For information: we sold this tile to a good friend and private collector some twenty years ago. Regretfully he has since passed away and we are now able to offer it again for someone else to enjoy.
