Chinese white jade circular pedestal box


Lid is suffused with brilliant apple-green that deepens to an emerald tone and the top is carved overall with an intricate stylized dragon design. Encircling the lower pedestal is a key fret incised carving. The insides of the box and lid are well-hollowed. This box was intended for cosmetics or possibly for seal paste. There is a small nick to the inner rim of the box but is in overall good condition, retaining its original lustrous polish.

Acquired from a prominent North Carolina estate in the 1980s.

Height: 1 13/16 in.; Diameter: 1 7/8 in.
