Subject:Chinese Archaic Jade Disc.
Posted By: Mingblue Mon, Jul 27, 2020 IP: 27.125.135.241

A beautifully carved archaic jade disc. Shows 3D carvings of ‘ chi longs’ ( dragons ) on both sides. One side has deeper carvings than the other side. Translucent also and supposedly from original white jade. Measures 3.5ins in diameter and 0.25ins thick ( excluding the carvings ). Personally owned. A Han dynasty piece. Comments are welcome.

This is not Han dynasty jade. It's a 20th century copy typically sold as tourist type ware. You can clearly see the broken lines indicating modern drill. I doubt that it is genuine untreated jade.
