A beautifully carved archaistic nephrite jade pendant in a variegated celadon color with russet areas dating from the Qing Dynasty, 1800s. Chinese carvers of the Qing Dynasty and later often paid tribute to previous generations of carvers by taking inspiration from their work. This pi pendant stylistically shows influence from earlier dynasties including Zhou and Han. The carving is very good. The circular pi shape may have originated from the shape of wheels which later became devices for communicating with the heavens. This pi pendant measures approximately 2.5 inches in diameter. It is in fine condition with no chips or cracks. A free neck cord will be included on request.
