Description

This large and finely carved set of three Celadon jade plaques would have been designed to be fitted onto an ornamental Ruyi or sceptre, probably carved from a highly polished hardwood. Pierced lugs on the reverse would secure the plaques to the wooden handle though the condition of these plaques is so good that it is unlikely they were ever used in this way.

From a private UK collection.
