Antique 17th Century Chinese Qing Dynasty solid silver-gilt Ruyi scepter, Exceptionally hand crafted, fine engraved work, realistically modelled, removable dragon head revealing Chinese seal mark, symbolising peaceful, quiet, happy, healthy. Ruyi literally translated as you wish , a curved decorative object that serves as a ceremonial scepter in Chinese Buddhism or a talisman symbolizing power and good fortune in Chinese folklore. A traditional ruyi has a long S-shaped handle and a head fashioned like a fist, cloud, or lingzhi mushroom. Ruyi are constructed from diverse materials.

For example, the Palace Museum in Beijing has nearly 3000 ruyi that are variously made from valuable materials like gold, silver, iron, bamboo, wood, ivory, coral, rhinoceros horn, lacquer, crystal, jade, and precious gems. The "ruyi" image frequently appears as a motif in Asian art.

Some ruyi scepters are made of metal including gold, silver, copper and iron. They are worked with techniques including inlays and filigree. Those made of gold, silver and copper are mostly decorated with incised floral patterns. ANTIQUE 17thC CHINESE QING DYNASTY SOLID SILVER-GILT DRAGON RUYI SCEPTRE c.
