|Description: A nephrite white jade buckle was carved exquisitely with a dragon head. In fine and pure Hou-Tien quality, the beautiful jade piece was reflected with slight celadon tint and was carved excellently in bas-relief in depicting the details. From the characteristics of the jade quality, the carving style, the fine finishing work, and the decent form of the whole piece, it was justified as a piece from early Qing period of 17th-18th century. Further more, the faint yellowish suffusion occurred on the dragon's head and under it's neck proved it a piece from excavation for sure, Sizes: 7.6cm x 4.2cm|
