An ancient Chinese Phoenix wine glass, which is more than 200 years old, is being auctioned by Bonhams in Hong Kong. The artifact is valued at more than $ 600 thousand, the English trading house said on Wednesday.
According to Bonhams representatives, the white jade glass wine glass with a carved dragon dates back to the reign of the sixth Manchu ruler of the Qing Empire (1735-1795), who ruled under the motto "Qianlong" ("unshakable and glorious").
The artifact will go under the hammer during an exhibition dedicated to Chinese art. "More than 40 works will be presented, which make it possible to trace the development of wine culture throughout the history of China," says the website of one of the leading trading houses in England.
