This is a small 2 sections Jade(Nephrite) Cong. Probably have about 20 small Jade Congs in my collections. This is posted because of following:
01.There are two types of Face images,a simplified upper and a more complex lower face type.
02. The two faces are not aligned in same direction and the lower complex face shows the finer refinement of the eyes being concaved in.
03.Even in such a small Cong (H:4.8cm 1 7/8") there is still the dimensional characteristic of the bottom being slightly smaller in size but now most fakers of Congs will put that in, esp. for the larger Congs.
04.This small Cong would have formed part of a necklace of the Liangzhu Culture elite.
05.Most 'experts' considered that most Liangzhu Jades are of 'chicken bone white', but this is of a creamy white pleasing patina. In fact ,if look at the Intricate Bird of the Liangzhu under Bird Collection will show again a different patina.
Forming my Public Collection of Liangzhu Culture Jade, but very LAZY and so post what has been 'finished'.
