An early, possible Pre-Dynastic Jade bead of a very large size, Song or Earlier, before 1200 AD.

A very interesting large bead from the Tony Lee collection. The bead of simple tubular form, drilled and finely polished in a mottled and perhaps calcified celadon jade type.

The bead is very attractive and surely finished in hand with ancient tools, thus slightly asymethric with fine patina.

Size: 9 cm.! Weight: 69 grams.

Condition: Choice and intact.

Provenance: Tony Lee Collection.
