A Chinese grey white jade plaque deeply carved with a dragon and flaming pearl, a bat and magic clouds. This plaque was once part of a set which adorned a belt as can be deduced by the holes and thread channels seen on the back. Yuan or Ming dynasty.

The jade is nicely worn on the front. The rear has a disturbed patina which I suspect might be a result of burial. There are two distinct areas where the surface is matt or cloudy, I have tried to show these in the photographs.

Approximately 7.2 cm x 5 cm. Fine condition.

Please study the photographs.
