PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF LOLO SARNOFF
In Chinese historical literature it is recorded that many rulers of different dynasties, starting from the first emperor of Qin to the last of the Qing dynasty, were granted the 'seal of the mandate of heaven' (shoumingxi), but few examples have survived. This jade seal has been ascribed to the Tang dynasty, is obviously a fictitious attribution, probably due to some historical and political motivation. The carving of the dragon and the style of inscription, suggests a Ming dynasty date.
