This rare turquoise-inlaid bronze ge would have been made at the same time as the examples with similar bird's-head hilt, but with a jade rather than a bronze blade, such as lot 230.
For a similar all bronze example that appears to have lost its inlay, see Max Loehr, Chinese Bronze Age Weapons, The University of Michigan, 1956, pl. XXVII, no. 60. See, also, the similar ge in the collection of Fritz Low-Beer, included in the Exhibition of Chinese Art, Venice, 1954, p. 29, no. 43.
