ANCIENNE COLLECTION PARTICULIÈRE ALLEMANDE

LITTERATURE: Jadeite, known as feicui in Chinese, originated in modern-day Burma and appeared in China somewhat late in history. The Qianlong-Jiaqing reigns (1736-1820) and the Cixi regency (1861-1908) were the two most important periods of jadeite production. As the material was precious, jadeite was used mostly for small personal ornaments including court necklaces, thumb rings, pendants and rosary bracelets such as the present lot. For an example from the Imperial collection similarly comprising jadeite and tourmaline beads, see Gugong zhenbao, Beijing, 2004, p. 123.
