Possibly Duanfang (1861-1911) 
From at least 1969 to 1970
Eugene Meyer (1875-1959) and Agnes E. Meyer (1887-1970), Washington, DC, and Mt. Kisco, NY 
Freer Gallery of Art, bequeathed by Agnes E. Meyer 
 An inscription on the box with which the jade was acquired, “Zhou, Ting, Taozhai zhen cang," provides a reference to the Taozhai, Duanfang’s studio, indicating that the jade may have been part of the Duanfang collection. The jade is not included in Duanfang’s jade catalogue, Taozhai gu yu tu, published posthumously in 1936 in Shanghai, but it is known that not all jades assembled by Duanfang were included in the catalogue.
 The object is included in a codicil to Agnes E. Meyer’s will and testament, dated December 23, 1969, copy in object file.
 See a codicil to Agnes E. Meyer’s will and testament cited in note 2.
