Exceptional, very large 19th Century Chinese Green Jade Buckle with an ornate brass mounting. This massive Buckle has three Jade sections; the largest in the middle. The Jade is translucent with matching Apple Green Jade centers and milky white / pale green borders.
The mounting on the underside has an ornate incised/engraved pattern. The small separate brass section fits over the prongs. The belt material would be affixed to both the small section and to underside of the buckle itself. The antique Jade Buckle measures 4" inches in length and 1 1/2" inches in height. Has good heft and is in very good condition.
Note the Jade sections have normal wear, with some pitting and scuffing in small areas, The center Jade has an internal hairline crack that is closer to the surface in the area closer to its border. In part can be felt with that fingernail when passed over it. The Brass mounting and buckle section have an beautiful aged patina, tarnish, oxidation that polish can remove most to a brighter and shiny finish. This is a fabulous antique ornamental buckle.
Shows very well in the photographs and even more stunning in person. We added a photo collage more recently of this fantastic antique Jade Buckle. The photos were taken in different lighting to show the surface and coloring with and without a camera flash. Note the Buckle is picking up camera flash reflections and other reflections while being photographed.
