This finely carved white jade stone with russert inclusions,formed in the shape of a mountain bamboo lodge with a scholar seated alone playing a traditional Chinese string instrument.(Qin)On the back of the carving is a wonderful Chinese poem written and signed by Wang Wei,entitled "The Bamboo Lodge". Seated alone among the the shadowy bamboos,I play my Qin & laugh aloud; Nobody knows that I am here,deep in the woods;Only the bright moon comes to shine upon me. The condition is perfect.Circa:Qing Dynasty, Guangxu period.(1875-1908)Size:2 1/2"in length,Height:1 1/4". A treasured possession in any Chinese jade collection. (stand included)
