Rare Ancient Chinese Neolithic Cong/Ring. A substantial slope sided circular ring which features a large biconically drilled central hole and four grooved and smoothed channels extending outward on the top and the bottom. These channels suggest divisions in the brow of a carved creatures face which appears four times around the perimeter. Made of extremely pretty high quality green and creamy white Nephrite Jade.
Numerous signs of differential weathering an iron staining from exposure in nature in various places on the surfaces. Lovely old silky smooth polish over its entirety.
A very similar example can be seen in Jessica Rawson's renowned 1995 reference book - Chinese Jade - From the Neolithic to the Qing - on page 118, identified as possibly Neolithic Hongshan from Northeast China, circa 3,500 - 3,000 B. High quality green and creamy white Nephrite Jade. Approximately 2 3/8" Round x 1 1/8" Tall. __________________________________________________ Jackson's On Main sells high quality art and antiquities at excellent prices from both our extensive collection and from the private collections of our clients and various estates.
