*All offered artifacts are ancient, no new manufacturings but before you purchase, please note, that the determination into the corresponding dynasties is very difficult since the artifacts were often used unchangedly over a longer culture time period. Even experts often have various opinions.

The dynasties mentioned here, were all determinated by Chinese experts. Since the determinations are subject to various interpretations, a correction is reserved. A return because of wrong dynasty classification is not possible*.

General remark:

Please notice, in found condition many of the Jade Artifacts and Bi-Discs were strongly calcinated and were more or less cleaned (un)properly. Therefore the impression can result for a replication because after cleaning the most of them were polished with (bee)wax.

All Jade Artifacts are carefully examined microscopically and only originals will come into the sale.

Please, take into account, that packing is more consuming, because I want, that the Artifacts shall arrive you undamaged!
