An ivory plaque was kept in perfect condition.
Being preserved in enduring old condition-the darken patina and the naturally yielded crackles all over the surface, the plaque was used to be a pendant.
By rare and good quality, it was kept in plain form which was responding to a Chinese proverb-- Niang Tsa Bu Zhuo, A High-Ranking Material Is So Precious That Should Be Saved from Carving.
An old-drilled hole was found at the top for hanging.
An old amber bead was fastened to fit this charming piece.

Date: Ming Dynasty, 15th/16th century.

Dimension: 4.2cm x 3.1cm x 1.1cm.
