Ming Dynasty, The official seal of a high ranking Ming Dynasty government official (Chang Shi), officials of this rank are in charge of the overall management of the imperial government, so all requests for names, titles, marriages, benefactors, and statements of gratitude and offerings were first screened by the Chang Shi before presenting it to the emperor. Even Dukes have to answer to them should their behaviour be deemed unsatisfactory. The seal on offer is from the later stage of the Ming Dynasty, and has changed hands many times over the course of more than 3 centuries before making its way to a European collector. Rare.
