Unusual late Qing Dynasty (late 19th century to 1911) Chinese scholar’s rock in a form of a natural jadeite boulder with cut sides suggesting a sloping mountain with dense vegetation. Line running parallel to the base in the upper part of the stone on Enlargement 5 is not a repair, but a natural feature of the rock. Excellent natural untreated jadeite of green color with lighter colored patches and black veining, colors brought out by beautiful matte polish to the surface. Wonderfully rich textured stone, carved fitted hardwood stand. Great object for contemplation on scholar’s desk, beautiful patina on the surface of the stone and stand. Length with stand 3 13/16 inches, height with stand 3 1/8 inches.
