Detail:  The stylings of this piece are from the Western Jin Dynasty (265-420 AD).  The original pieces were used specifically by court officials and the griffins were protective creatures.  Our Chinese agent secured it from a private home in Lishui in the Zhejiang Province.  It appears to have been repaired at one time.  Age  unknown.
