19th Century Jade Archer's Ring With Taotie Carving
Chinese men of social station, such as the literati and the officialdom of China, would wear these jade cylinder thumb rings (or archer’s rings) on their thumbs. They are said to have evolved from the very early devices used to bring the bow string back and release so that it would not tear the thumb of the archer. By the time of the Song and Ming Dynasties the thumb rings had devolved to the point of being simply beautiful cylinders of jade or other materials that, when worn, were a statement of the individual’s higher rank. The thumb ring is an excellent way to express privilege because with one of these thumb rings on it is almost impossible to do any sort of real work with the hands. They make all things rather clumsy, but they do certainly express the privilege of the individual wearing them. Its surprising that an item as small and plain as a cylindrical thumb ring can provide so much opportunity for artistry. Much of the enjoyment of these rings comes from the materials they are made of. But as archers rings became more ornamental and less practical, the materials that could be used expanded greatly. In this way they are very similar to Chinese snuff bottles, and many of the same materials were used. This amazing thumb ring is carved from nepherite jade. The design is of a Taotie, wonderfully incised in the Han Dynasty tradition. The condition is old, but perfect. __________________________________________________ Jackson’s On Main sells high quality art and antiquities at excellent prices from both our extensive collection and from the private collections of our clients and various estates.
