|Credit Line:||Purchased from A. W. Bahr, 1930|
Jade ring, yuan or huan, made of light, green-grey jade with a raised dot pattern between two plain, rim edges. It is typical of a late Zhou Dynasty ring disk called a "girdle ornament". There are raised bosses, about five across the width, engraved and slightly modelled in a pattern across the entire surface. Some of these are connected like a 'cloud and thunder' scroll. Seems to go wiith 30-8-8.
