Antique Pale Celadon Ruki-Shaped Chinese Jade Hairpin / Magnifying Glass

A fine antique jade mounted as a magnifying glass in the form of a Ruki shaped hairpin. The glass is framed in a silver tone metal and supported with an A-frame splayed foot. The nephrite jade is pale celadon in color. The magnifying glass was likely assembled in the early 20th century by someone influenced by Edward I. Farmer or one of his contemporaries.

The jade is finely carved and possibly earlier than the 20th century. It is in overall good, as-pictured used estate condition with some very fine and light scratches and other signs of light wear consistent with age and use. The silver tone metal is unmarked for fineness or content.
