Condition Consensus: Very Fine Condition.

A finely carved white jade bi. Carved in Han dynasty style with earth and cloud patterns. We attribute the age of this bi to the Late Ming to Early Qing dynasty, (17th-18th c.). The jade is a translucent, fatty uniform white in color and shimmering skin. The condition is very fine and consistent with the attributed age. There is a natural 'internal' fracture that does not come to the surface of the bi.
