A very large, near 14" Chinese calligraphy brush consisting a collection of 7 jade archer's rings. Historically such rings were worn by archers to protect their fingers in hunting or the game of archery. They eventually became status symbols of masculinity, bravery and wealth. These rare rings are made of green jade with beautiful natural black, gray or russet accents. This is a very special piece that is functional as a painting or calligraphing brush, artistic as a gemstone design element and has a high collectable value. Bone ferrule and horse hair.
