INCLUDING THE PHOTO FOR THE PURPOSE OF SHOWING YOU THE OTHER ONE LISTED. WOW - WHAT AN AMAZING FIND!Circa Qing Dynasty, Late 18th/ early 19th Century CHINESE Jade Malachite & Garnet? Featuring gorgeous Jade, Malachite and Garnet (I believe) stones. The polished stones are chunky pieces set in gilded bronze decorated with highly desirable bat design. When an adornment incorporates a bat design, it is said to be a wish for blessings and happiness.
Chinese robes had no pockets and belts (Chao Dai), created of tightly woven silk, were worn closely belted over the robe. The quality of the Buckle would indicate the status of the wearer and the genuine jade, malachite and garnet stones reflected high social standing. The belt would have a range of items hung from it such as fan cases, fragrance purses and tobacco or snuff bottle pouches.
