Very vintage from the Qing Dynasty, classic carved all around Dragon and Phoenix jade bangle bracelet. The size is 65 mm inside diameter, very wide 25 mm, Due to the width this will fit like 4-6 mm smaller than 65 mm. This is the kind of jade bangle the Emperor wore. Very bold, lots of carving throughout. And very well carved, symbols of dragon, phoenix, lotus and more you can explore when it's on your wrist. No damage, cracks or chips, very good condition because of the good quality of the jade stone. This is Chinese jade, and the kind of jade Chinese royalty and other people wore until Burmese jadeite was introduced to China.
YYJ purchased this while traveling in China in 2000 from an estate seller who had a safe full of Dynasty Era jade. The story is the royal family was killed during the Communist Revolution 1945-1950 and person who was selling them was keeping them until the Dynasty was back in power, which of course it never happened.
Photos taken in natural outdoor light at different angles so you can see how it looks all around.
Ships to USA addresses only. Very valuable, much higher price if you purchased it in China today, 20 years later.
