Subject:Chinese jade seal
Posted By: Chris J. Sun, Jul 09, 2017 IP:

I need translation of this jade seal and opinion how old it is. I now only that it belonged to one chinese healer and it was made before 1920. Measurements of the seal are 3,3 x 3,3 x 6,9 cm

I can't tell if it is jade or not (Try the needle test). It looks more like JingTian stone to me.

It reads: 上海兌禮醫生. This says: ShangHai DuiLi YiSheng. ShangHai is obviously the city; DuiLi (I have no idea, Google Translate says 'against the ceremony'), YiSheng means Doctor.

It's carved in regular script, which indicates it was to be used in some form of commercial enterprise, rather than being a name seal or artist's seal. 1920s sounds OK.
