Antique Chinese Brass Mirror with Hook / Buckle of Jade Nephrite Belt with Dragon & Dragon Son of the Qing Dynasty.
Age: The design of the Jade buckle is typical of the 18th century. A signature appears on the rear base of the mirror, which if we are not mistaken, could place it in the time of Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795) so it would be located among the XVIII-XIX centuries, in the firm we believe to interpret (三 年 乾 龍) as 3rd Year of Qian Long, and we would date it in the year 1739.
Type: mirror with carved jade Belt Buckle
Region of Origin: China
Primary Material: Jade Nephrite handle, mirror body probably in brass with inscription on the part of the joint with the handle with two cabochons made of natural carnelian and chalcedony or agate between a Dragon and a Phoenix in relief on the back, classic design in the Chinese wedding trousseau where the Dragon represents the masculine part and the Fenix the feminine, possibly it was a wedding gift.
Condition: The handle is slightly off the hook, as if someone had tried to tear it off because it is the most valuable thing but it can be restored.
