Lot essay
A jade mask ornament with very similar central design but of a different shape at the two ends is in the National Palace Museum Collection (acquisition no. gou yu 272), illustrated in Art in Quest of Heaven and Truth- Chinese Jades through the Ages, Taipei, 2012, pl. 3-3-28. An even more similar example, measuring 17.2 cm. wide, is in the Freer Gallery of Art Collection; its line drawing illustrated in Teng Shu-p’ing, Collectors’ Exhibition of Archaic Chinese Jades, National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1999, p. 14, fig. 5:2. Another similar but mostly calcified example was in the Lant’ien Shanfang Collection, ibid., pl. 13. A jade mask ornament of similar design but with shorter ‘teeth’, attributed to the Hongshan Culture, now in the Tianjin Art Museum, is illustrated in Zhongguo yuqi quanji -1- yuanshi shehui, Shijiazhuang, 1993, pl. 14
