Group Discussion > CHINESE SPINACH-GREEN JADE- LARGE QING DYNASTY DRAGON SEAL

Hello! What you guys think of the piece on ebay, Item number: 330725180043

It says....This large China, Qing Dynasty Spinach-Green Cylindrical Dragon Seal was auctioned by Sincerity International Auctioneer at their Singapore 5th Year Anniversary Sales last year. Please see the scan copy of the catalog which shows the same item. The physical item looks much better than the photos. The craftmanship is very fine and superb as claimed by the valuer who valued it between SGD40,000 to SGD60,000 and he said would probably be higher value in China/ Hong Kong market. This is a rare piece and intended for advance collector. I know the owner personally

I think I'm gonna get tired of seeing it just sitting there, at those prices! Who has that kind of money to spend on jade? They need to be my closest most dearest friend, if they're that rich! For one thing, Singapore dollars are currently valued about 25 cents higher than US dollars, so it's already priced well above its estimated value, for the US market. For another thing, there's not enough evidence to take it seriously! The scan copy of the auction catalog could easily be photoshopped, or the piece itself could simply be a copy. Where's the certificate of authenticity, that could also easily be faked? For that kind of money, it should have one, if the seller really thinks someone on ebay is actually gonna buy it from them! Do they really think people will just take their word for it that it's genuine, for that kind of money? Also, if the seller really did buy it on auction themselves, why didn't they include a scan copy of their payment receipt for it? I'd say if it's genuine, it doesn't belong on ebay, it belongs in another real auction house!

The seller will give the original copy of the catalog and buyer can also verify with the auction I was told. Expert should be able to verify the qing dynasty work as far as I know.
