Auction Description for J Levine Auction & Appraisal LLC: Jade Session II
Viewing Notes:
This is the 2nd session of offerings from this amazing private collection, running concurrently with our Thursday night auction. A lifetime in the making, the collection began in the late 1930s when a boy & his family from Morro Bay, California took a summer trip to what is now referred to as Jade Cove. They collected some exceptionally fine quality nephrite jade on this trip and thus began a passion. (Note: Today, collecting at Jade Cove is very restricted. There are beautiful specimens, ocean polished by the waves, to there present natural, smooth, & beautiful finish.) After WWII, the boy, now a man, continued collecting and in the late 1940s began to purchase jewelers' collections, including fine cabochons from The Oriental American Gem Company of Phoenix Arizona. Quite Rare Examples. The collection continued over the next 5 decades and is quite impressive. We hope you enjoy the finds we are offering at auction.
