4. A small white jade buffalo, Qing dynasty, early 19th century

The recumbent animal with its head turned to the left to face its hind quarters, its legs tucked under its body, its longer left horn resting on its back, the stone of an even white tone

Length: 5cm

Provenance: Purchased in Ludlow, Shropshire UK, 2007.

The consistency and colour of the stone in this carving is of a high standard and its overall rounded form leads one to conclude that it was most likely carved from a pebble. The curved line of the spine from the tail to the base of the head gives definition and beautifully defines the roundness of the form.
