Antique Chinese Agalmatolite Stone Carving
Chimera
Pixiu Libation Vessel
Origin: China, Circa: Qing, 19th century
H.5.5 in.(14cm) W. 9.5 in.(24cm) D. 3.25 in.(8.25cm)
Condition: hairline cracks, o.a. very good

A 19th century white agalmatolite stone carving of a chimera, beautifully aged with ironized random yellowing from mineral deposit. The exact style and somber treatment of this mythical beast is found to be consistent with its age. Here the auspicious animal is crouching with head raised, baring large fangs and curling tongue in a deep hollowed open jaw, two carved through long horns reaching across its back, where the wings formed into an ovoid shaped vessel for pouring wine in ritual services. The chimera is finely sculpted with perfect delineation, highly polished with rounded edges, and low relief of tigers and clouds motifs. There is no breakage but a few hairline cracks due to its age.
