Gorgeously hand carved out, this antique peking glass has a beautiful egg yolk colored background that is hand polished with deep aubergine, and delicate visible brush strokes, modeling the fine craftmanship. Washer is covered with two stylized bats, a good fortune Shaou design, and Chinese coin design wishing good wealth. Top banding has a ringed chinese key design in aubergine color and base banding shows a ring of lotus petal. Gorgeous detailing and color tone all around, this piece is from the Republic period. Circa 1912. Dimensions: 2.25" tall X 4" in diameter
