A rare jade archer,s ring, which to me is the actual archers ring used with the bow and arrow rather then the better know thumb ring which is more a piece of jewelry. It was used on the thumb, that's where the "thumb ring" comes from and more than likely on a gloved hand due to the size. See the last three photos of a similar one in a Chinese jade book. Size: H:5.5cm, W. 4cm

A very large jade disc carved with a hole in the center. Both sides of this central hole are lipped which is very rare in "bi's." Compared with flat bi's, lipped bi's require a lot more carving and are much more difficult to make. The bi is beautiful with its complex colors and patterns. The colors range from cream to greys, ochres, greens and blues.

Period: Neolithic ( 3rd millennium B.C.)

Size: Diameter = 26.7 cm (10-1/2 inches)

Condition: Very good...

Brown jade pig dragon also known as Zhulong in Chinese. It is hard to date this piece. I feel that it is of a much later period as these pieces are extremely rare. Probable a later copy but not a fake. It is well carved and would make a nice pendant. Size: L. 7.5cm, W. 5cm
