From my own collection. When I acquired this at a shop in New York City in the early 1980's, it was identified as a late 19th Century soapstone carving. However, I do not believe it is an antique but rather a 20th century soapstone and am listing it as such. It is clearly at least 30 years old.

It is beautifully carved - a figure of a sow with her suckling piglets. I love the striations in the soapstone, and of course the depiction is beautifully executed. The custom made wood carved stand has pegs to secure it from shifting, but is not attached.

Overall measurement (figure with stand) is 8-1/2" wide, 5" high, 3" deep. The measurement of the soapstone figure alone is approximately 7" wide, 4-1/4" wide, 2-1/2" deep.

Excellent condition - no chips in figure or stand.
