Chinese Qing Dynasty Dragon Bronze Belt HookChinese Qing Dynasty Dragon Bronze Belt HookChinese Qing Dynasty Dragon Bronze Belt HookChinese Qing Dynasty Dragon Bronze Belt HookChinese Qing Dynasty Dragon Bronze Belt HookChinese Qing Dynasty Dragon Bronze Belt Hook

A well and deeply cast Chinese bronze belt hook from the Qing dynasty with a chilong facing the parent dragon with an offering of the lingzhi fungus in its mouth. I love the raised scales on the baby dragons. The details are very fine. They show the hair, the fungus, the teeth, tongue, lotus scrolling on the back, and even a partial taotie mask on the back. The bronze has a nice warm gold color. The buckle fits together exactly.

There are no marks or labels.

MEASUREMENTS

3 5/8” (9.2 cm) long x 1 1/16” (2.7 cm) tall x 5/8” (1.6 cm) thick. Weighs 2.8 oz (75 g)

CONDITION

There are no breaks, dents, or cracks. There is some wear and light corrosion to the bronze on the back from use.

A great piece of the metal workers art. I love the fine detail of the casting.
