Rare, hand made, vintage (c1979) Chinese jade peach tree.

This miniature, bonsai, tree was made by highly skilled artisans in China and dates from the 1970’s. In recent years, Chinese collectors and the Chinese government have been acquiring pieces like this tree in an effort to “re-patriate” Chinese art within China as an expression of national pride. It is very difficult to find jade sculptural pieces of this kind and quality outside of China now.

The peaches of the tree are made of very beautiful, colored, hardstone. The leaves are made of nephrite jade. The tree i s place in a dark green marble pot. The entire piece has been skillfully carved and polished to produce refined, intricate shapes. The tree trunk and branches are also hand made with papier mache. The leaves and peaches are attaches to the tree trunk by skillfully hidden wire.

For the Chinese, jade is a symbol of good fortune and the peach symbolizes long life. The larger more mature peaches of the tree represent older, mature life. These peaches show a deeper red color. The smaller, unripe, peaches, which are almost entirely green and white in color, represent new life.

This is an investment grade, rare, artwork which represents a vanishing world of high craftsmanship. The piece is in like new condition.

Tree and jade pot/planter (not including wood stand/base): 22.25”H x 20.50”L x 15.50”W
