Late Qing Dynasty (late 19th century to 1911) Chinese rock crystal seal with 4 carved characters on the base, traces of red seal paste in the grooves. The material is rock crystal - there are some natural inclusions in the stone that did not photograph well, but can be seen against the light. The impression of the seal is shown on Enlargement 1 - it can be translated as “Terrace of Moon intoxication”. Matte finish, mellow patina, overall in great condition, wonderful object for scholar’s table. Height 3/4 inches, base diameter 7/8 inches.
