These square glass toggles are very interesting. They measure about 5 X 5 X 1.5 cm, and are carved in glass that is riddled with holes, some circular, some flattened in cross section, and I have 8 of them, The ends have been ground out, and the central hole drilled through. Through the glass you can see the circular score marks. I shall try and draw the images and post tomorrow.

In the first two photos, the pieces are in the same relative location, showing front and back images

Now top and bottom

and some individual images.
First a zhulong

A C-dragon. Sorry, a bit blurred

A 'God'. Note the defects running longitudinally

A woman

Kneeling man

A cow god

Obverse of same piece

Can anyone read the characters on two of these pieces?
