Description: A white jade piece was carved from one fine Houtien pebble. In a beautiful figure of a phoenix holding a lotus bud on its beak from the hanging ribbons, the holy fowl was resting on a lotus leaf with radiated veins. Having been done in an exquisite craftsmanship, this jade piece owned all the characteristics of a traditional jade piece would have- especially on the esthetics. By a charming greasy feel and the subtle transparent quality which the old Houtien pebbles would possess, it was more cherishable by its fine carvings as well as by the good size of 6.0cm x 3.9cm x 1.5cm. It can be an adequate hanging piece and an ideal display item too- ‘cause it stands well by itself. Date: Ming Dynasty(15th-16th Century).
