This charming Asian hardstone carving depicts a mountain scene with plenty of trees, a number of small buildings, and even an elephant in the foreground.
This is the type of small treasure that I always enjoyed giving as gifts, since it fits almost anywhere, and serves as a daily reminder of the giver.
It is 6 and 1/2 inches across, and 4 inches tall.
CONDITION No damage.
The overall condition is as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners. Unsigned.
Circa first quarter of 20th Century.
Provenance - Leslie Hindman Auctions.
