Fine Antique Jade Carving, Mythical Lion-Dog plus Pup
Fine Antique Jade Carving, Mythical Lion-Dog plus Pup. Presenting a very fine antique jade (I think nephrite) carving of a mythical lion beast and her/his cub (or pup). A good size at 4 inches long and with a good feel in the hand, this carving has a delightful subject as one perceives the adult beast looking back to check on the welfare of his young cub. The dimensionality and sculptural qualities of the piece are really satisfying, and the carver must have been very skilled to represent musculature and anatomy as he did. The adult lion-dog holds a ball between his front paws. The carving is smooth in texture. I would say the dominant color is a pale green with some degree of variability. Please look at the photos carefully which are not enhanced.

It measures approximately 4 inches long by about an 1 3/4 (and inch and three quarters) in both height and width. Its a nice weight and as I said has a really nice feel in the hands. I would date this piece to the 19th century, though I suppose there is a chance that it could be as late as Republic period/early 20th century. Look carefully at the pics and make your own judgment.

The piece is in overall very good condition with natural expected wear. I only deal in genuine and high quality items, I have no interest in junk. If I dont know something about a pieceand there is much I do not know about all kinds of thingsI will state so plainly. Please note that I do not guarantee the condition of the frame on any paintings I list; if there is any serious damage or instability I will certainly mention it but otherwise expect there to be some imperfections and look carefully at the images. I only charge what the shipper charges me (and sometimes less than that).

All sales are final sales. This would be at my own discretion. GOOD LUCK AND THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AT MY AUCTIONS.
