Antique China Seal, Qing, Bronze: Taoist Society. Scarce.

Antique Chinese seal made of bronze. It belonged to a Taoist society, who also distributed their own paintings, calligraphy and book with this seal's impression on them.

The seal is from the Qing-Dynasty, app. 2-300 years old. There probably was a kind of handle at the upper part to make the printing easier.

2 x 2 inches. Scarce seal with historical value.
