Very attractive archaic Chinese flat hard-stone disc, a so called Bi.

Dark hard-stone disc with stylized birds in typical Han Dynasty style at both sides. It should be from Qing Dynasty. It is hand carved in delicately executed technique and stands out when presented.

Diameter: 9.9 inches (25 cm), good condition.

A fitting traditional Chinese wooden stand is included in the lot. The stand is newer.

The bi (Chinese: 璧; pinyin) is a type of circular ancient Chinese artifact. The earliest bi were produced in the Neolithic period, particularly by the Liangzhu culture (3400-2250 BC).Later examples date mainly from the Shang, Zhou and Han dynasties.
