A fine Chinese neolithic jade axe, ca. 5th. millenium BC.

Sometimes described as from the period of Hongshan, this type of axe should date as early as 5000-4000 BC.

Likely from the Liaoning province but the same type of the same culture had first been found in Xinglongwa, north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, hence the name Xinglongwa culture.

A typical axe of a basic axe form with curving sides and a sharp bit, made in an attractively patinated green nephrite jade. Thin undeveloped butt / rear.

Size: 9,3 cm. long.

Condition: Choice!, wonderful green-calcified patina

Ex. Danish Private Collection, bought in the London antiquities market in the 1990s.
