Similar ge-halberd blades were excavated from late Shang dynasty tombs at Anyang, as evidenced by the quite similar example excavated from the tomb of the Shang queen, Fu Hao, consort of king Wu Ding, at Anyang, Henan province, illustrated in Yinxu Yuqi (The Jades from Yinxu), Beijing, 1982, pl. 17. Unlike the present example the jade blade of the Fuhao ge fits into a bronze socket inlaid in turquoise with a taotie mask set below the hafting bar. This is also true of a similar ge in the Winthrop Collection illustrated by M. Loehr, Ancient Chinese Jades, Cambridge, 1975, p. 80, no. 81, as well as another in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts illustrated in Chinese Jades: Archaic and Modern, Rutland, Vermont/Tokyo, 1977, p. 53, no. 16.
