Lot 0005 Details

Late Qing Dynasty (late 19th century to 1911) Chinese rock crystal seal in mortar shape with 4 carved raised characters on the base. Wonderful simple piece appropriate for a scholar’s desk. The material is rock crystal - there are some natural inclusions in the stone that did not photograph well, but can be seen against the light. Beautiful finish, old dried seal paste in the grooves, mellow patina, overall in great condition. The impression of the seal is shown on Enlargement 1 (photo is flipped left to right to present the image as it will actually print on paper). Height 7/8 inches, base diameter 15/16 inches.
