It`s just sublime. I don`t see what`s so wrong with the photo but obviously you know how the colours were. As it is it makes my brain fizz.... I can`t describe it any other way!

I think during this period tribute gifts are made ,, people traded. I think the jade is Mughal and they were used in the belt.  Courts often used and incorporated these gifts.  This was used by some one very special.  These terrible photos don't do the colors justice,, they were incredible.

Is the jade an Ottoman addition? Unbelievably beautiful piece.
