Although the patterns found on the present jade are not uncommon in the Western Zhou dynasty, it is extremely rare to find them on bracelets. The overall form is reminiscent of Neolithic jade bracelets, especially those from the Liangzhu Culture. Compare two Liangzhu examples in the collection of National Museum of Asian Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. (acc. nos F1917.385 and F1919.46), published in Elizabeth Childs-Johnson and Gu Fang, The Jade Age: Early Chinese Jades in American Museums / Yu qi shi dai : Meiguo bo wu guan cang Zhongguo zao ji yu qi, Beijing, 2009, pp 54-55, pls 3-12 and 3-13. For a Western Zhou wide jade bracelet also carved with motifs in fine double lines, see one offered in our Hong Kong rooms, 9th October 2020, lot 89.
