Warring States Jade Huang Comma Spiral Ancient Archaic Hand Carved Chinese Art
Here we have an ancient unearthed jade amulet of crescent shape with comma grain pattern hand carved to both sides dating to the mid Warring States period of the Eastern Zhou Dynasty 476BC to 300BC. The altered jade is opaque of gray body color with darker variations in delicate cloud like patterns. Surface features and alteration are consistent with burial over the millennia. Both front and back are carved with highly symmetrical grain patterns in comma forms these alternating in spiral directions across each diagonal line of the huang shaped pendant. There is a slightly raised border to both sides to the edges visible in reflected light of subtle yet exquisite proportions the difference in depth here for this border just 0.5mm a subtle yet definite detail added by the artist who carved this extraordinary jade artifact. This piece is delicately carved of high polish and presents beautifully. The profile of the huang is complex and elegant with a raised geometric edge on both sides of the arc carved top and bottom both front and back. It measures approximately 1 7/8" tall by 5 3/4" wide by 3/16 in thickness (47mm x 146mm, 5mm). This exceptional archaic jade huang is in beautiful condition being ready to display and can certainly be worn if so desired.
