DESCRIPTION: A Chinese toggle carved from white nephrite to form three interlocking rings. No small feat, this would have been carefully carved from one stone to “release†each ring. This toggle would have been strung with a cord through the rings and hung from a sash as the counterweight for a tobacco pouch or other utilitarian object. Qing Dynasty and in excellent condition with no chips. DIMENSIONS: Each ring is approximately 1†in diameter.
