This jade box is carved out of a piece of greenish jade. The lid and the box are linked together. The patterns on the lid have three main groups. The jade ring held by the small knob in bridge shape can move freely. The box itself is in round bowl shape, decorated with patterns. The texture of the jade is warm. The inner and outer surfaces are delicately polished, and the carvings are sophisticated.
