An important massive Jade pendant in the shape of a Bat, Song Dynasty, 960-1279 AD.

The pendant is unusually large for Song and carved in white Jade with black and brown areas and inclusions. It depicts a Bat in a position of hanging from a ceiling with it's head turned up. The general style and execution is fantastic and this Bat is still the most accomplished ancient work of art in Jade that we've ever handled.

Size: 87 mm. wide, and 86 mm. long, weighing 252 grams!

Condition: Exceptional, with fine antique patinated surfaces.

Ex. Old Swedish Private collection, the collector purchased the Bat in the 1950s at Victoria Lindströms Antique shop in Stockholm.
