|Description: A unique gilt bronze archer's ring was skillfully hammered in double decks. The main portion on the outer surface was casted with two types of Chinese archaic words Sou (Long Life)in open work and surrounding the ring when chased dots were decorated. On the upper and lower portions, two bands of key-fret patterns were carved neatly for framing the words. In the inner wall, Open-worked coin patterns and finely defined inscriptions of Jin Yi Fun and Tuo Tien were casted with meticulous work. Kept with well preserved gilding, the old archer's ring still reflect its past glamour in perfect condition with the darkened patina due to long time of oxidation. Date: Qing Dynasty (18th/19th Century), Height: 3.6cm, Width: 3.4cm, Weight: 36 gram.|
