New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/17/2014 -- The Sadigh Gallery in New York City is currently displaying a unique collection of Chinese Jade artifacts, acquired from a private estate, with pieces dating back to the Han Dynasty.
These rare pieces are already attracting the attention of collectors around the world. The aesthetics of the artifacts as well as the significance and symbolism of Jade stone in Asian culture, makes this collection especially unique.
“It’s not often you find pieces dating back to the 200s AD and we’ve got several that are part of this collection,” says Michael Sadigh, gallery owner. Additionally, we have several Jade artifacts that date up to the 1300s AD during the Ming Dynasty.”
Throughout history, Jade was used not only for weapons but for ornaments and ritual objects that today, give us cultural insight into the spiritual life of ancient China. Many of the pieces in the collection such as Jade discs, statues and ornate vessels, are key examples of the craftsmanship that drives collectors to these antiquities.
“The Chinese Jade pieces in this collection are truly rare and we’re honored to be able to offer them to those who want to own an item full of beauty and history,” says Sadigh. “It’s not everyday we acquire such a collection, especially one this old and culturally significant.”
The entire collection can be viewed on the gallery’s website at SadighGallery.com or viewed in person, by appointment, at the galley on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Each piece comes with a lifetime certificate of authenticity along with supporting documentation that provides further details about the culture and historical significance of ancient Chinese Jade.
