This is a very beautiful large antique nephrite jade pi disk which has been mounted on a leather cord to wear as a pendant. It is an archaistic piece from the Qing Dynasty, 18th/19th century, which pays homage to the Zhou and Han Dynasties in its stylistic content. Skilled jade carvers often paid tribute to earlier periods by incorporating stylistic elements into their own work. These pieces are knows as archaistic jades. The color of this large pi disk is a a pale gray nephrite with russet areas. The pi measures approximately 3 inches in diameter. Very fine carving of ancient symbols. The leather cord is approximately 22 inches long. If you prefer to display this museum quality piece rather than wear it, I will provide a carved wooden display stand on request. Unisex design suitable for men or women.
I have been collecting and selling jade for many years. This is part of my collection that was verbally authenticated by the San Francisco Asian Art Museum in 1974.
