Chinese jade bracelet bangle with two dragon chasing a pearl. Ming Dynasty, 16/17th century. Fine light-greenish white jade well carved with a lot of details showing the typical carving techniques of late Ming period.

The motif of two dragon chasing a flaming pearl has a long history in China dating back over 2,000 years. It was originated with dragon-lantern dance praying to Heaven for rain and good harvest. It later became a symbol of praying to Heaven for blessing.

Diameter: 6.5 cm inner diameter.

Condition: Good condition. Natural fissure on one side as shown in photo 5.
