Carved with pale tone jade, the object is a one tier jade cong. Four sides of the cong have identical motifs of low relief auspicious cloud and silkworm. There are four round shapes on top and center locations to form an abstract god’s face. The carving style has Spring Autumn characteristics with great detail. There are phoenixes to support the four corners of the cong. The phoenixes are designed with open wings which are applied with mini carving style. This is a rare Spring Autumn single tier jade cong with antiquity evidence of additive crystal, calcification and dissolved pits.QingCong
