Hindustan jade from Northern India is marked by its exquisite workmanship. In the eyes of the Qianlong Emperor (r. 1736-1795), it was superior in both decoration and carving compared with Chinese jades made at the time in workshops at Suzhou. The center and rim of this plate is inlaid with gold filament and red glass, exhibiting the unique technique and style related to pieces from the Mughal Empire of Northern India.
