A beautiful Chinese white nephrite [specific gravity of 2.87] wine cup that would’ve been used for ceremonial purposes.  Features an image of a beast adorning the tip along with some ornate design work all over. Not sure of an exact date of origin, judging by the design and the aging on it.  There is some wear, but it’s largely in good condition with no cracks or damage.  The cup measures 8 1/2 inches long, 3 1/2 inches tall, and 1 1/2 inches wide. It weighs about 450 grams
