This is an authentic, ancient Chinese Nephrite Jade ritual object known as a Cong, dating to the Late Neolithic Period, 2100-1600BCE. The piece is quite substantial, measuring 4" in height by 3-1/8" in width. PLEASE NOTE: if you collect in this area, you are undoubtedly aware that the market is flooded with later copies and fakes, often labeled "archaistic" and selling for relatively low prices. This piece has been examined and authenticated by an expert who is perhaps the preeminent authority on archaic jades. He has issued a certificate of authenticity which will be furnished to the purchaser at no extra cost. This is an opportunity to acquire the genuine article and not have to worry about whether it is "Ella Fitzgerald or Memorex"! Authenticity is absolutely and unconditionally guaranteed.
