19th century (can be much earlier) Chinese jade plaque carved on the front with a stylized twisting dragon and 2 heads of lingzhi fungus. Excellently carved in medium relief, its body incised with design of raised circles seen on Neolithic jades. Beautiful true jade with color ranging from light gray to brown to black, very clever use of the stone natural colors to accentuate the design. Wonderful matte finish to the surface, very pleasant to hold, hole in the fungus head by dragon’s mouth for hanging. Maximum diameter 2 5/8 inches, 1/4 inches thick.
