    This current lot is likely to be transformed from a lingguan, a unique accessory that is part of the official attire in Qing dynasty. It is of cylindrical shape (sometime tapered) and hollow down like a cigarette holder, used to hold feathers in place on hats of officials. Made of various materials to differentiate between ranking with jadeite being one of the most precious, only senior officials were permitted to wear jadeite lingguan during that historical period. Lot 604 offered in this auction is another example of this traditional jadeite form.

    此戒指上的翡翠相信是由清朝的翎管改造而成,厚度十足, 甚具氣派。翎管為朝庭官員官服上的飾物之一, 粗細如旱煙管,中空,上端微細有鼻,鼻上有孔,用以安插官帽上的翎子部件。清朝對各品級大臣的穿戴有著詳細嚴格的規定,絕不能僭越。翎管的材質中以翡翠算得上是十分貴重,只有高官階者才有資格佩戴。是次拍賣中的拍品604亦是另一個例子。
