Semi Precious Stone Jade Tree With Flowers in Footed Cloisonné Ming Style Jardiniere
Multi colour flowers carved from soapstone, carnelian, rose quartz, amethyst, turquoise, jade (possibly white and green), with individually hand cut and polished spinach jade leaves. The stamens are made from brass and topped with what looks like coral beads.
Flanked by two smaller trees, possibly peach/persimmon and grape (turquoise, jade and amethyst).
The Cloisonne Jardiniere rests on four small gold feet with white Buddhist flowers/lotus and is edged with the Cloud and Thunder pattern. it is signed on the underside - a small copper plaque with inscription about a child Emperor/Noble.
This ornamental tree ticks all the boxes!
