Chinese Bronze Large'Dragon & Pearl' Desk Seal, Late Qing or Qing Style, 9.5cm sq x 12cm high. This type of large-size seal is often known as a'Scholar's desk seal' and is typical of those made largely as ornamental accessories based in design or replicating earlier Imperial and Official seals.

The motif of this example shows a well detailed dragon holding the sacred pearl. The sides are slightly textured plain metal. The base has a beautiful Zhuan Shu seal script inscription. This seal was bought in 1962, along with several other examples, from the Oriental Department of the famous Liberty shop in London. In those days the basement of the store was full of all kinds of interesting oriental items, most of which were not catalogued as regards date, etc. Clearly this seal is at least around sixty years old; it could be older but cannot be guaranteed as older hence the reasonable asking price.
