C1920 CHINESE STERLING SILVER ENAMEL JADE PAGODA TEMPLE FORM TEA CADDY JAR BOX. JOANIES VOTED #1 NO RESERVE ESTATE AUCTIONS TEN YEARS AND RUNNING! Hi, thank you for having a look at my auctions. Joanies is Very excited to be offering the highly important estate collection of A Abraham. The collection consists of many fine and important jades and scholarly stone objects with numerous examples spanning from the 19th century to several thousand years old. I have now been commissioned to sell the rest of the collection including many of the most important and extremely rare examples. Abraham was a highly respected Asian Arts dealer and collector that specialized in jades, beads, and archaic scholarly objects. Abraham owned the Imperial Jade shop located in the famous King Edward Hotel in Toronto until the hotel closed for major renovations in 1976, 40 years ago. Abrahams jade shop was never reopened again. Abraham kept many of his most favorite examples that are now being offered in this sale. Most of the pieces have been in storage since the shop closed in 1976 and have not seen the light of day until now! There are also a number of pieces in the collection from the highly important Sir David Percival collection, including a Huang jade pendant being offered in this sale as you will see. Much of the Percival collection is now housed in the British museum and is considered one of the finest and most important collections known. A very special once in a life-time event, and surely one of my finest and most important sales to date! Special note: Around 12 years ago I wrote an article for my customers that in my opinion at the time fine Republic porcelain works were far undervalued, mostly that of the eight friends of Zhushan and Wang Bu. I have a great interest in Chinese archaic works myself as well and have kept a keen eye on the market. I noticed around 2-3 years ago some astonishing prices were being achieved for archaic jades. Then last year with the Hatfield collection Christies offered seemed to start an even bigger surge in the demand for fine archaic jades. Even Christies sale last week in Hong Kong had a number of small archaic jade pieces that brought some astonishing amounts. This tea caddy jar has a great design and is finely handmade throughout. The jar has a beautiful celadon jade interior that is then richly decorated with silver and enamel mounts. The tea caddy jar could use a light cleaning but is otherwise in very fine condition with no damage. The tea caddy jar is a great display piece that is still very practical for use measuring 7 inches tall, by 5 inches wide. The tea caddy jar weighs 706 grams. BEST OF LUCK WITH THE AUCTIONS!
