This beautifully carved Vase sculpture of Soapstone shows amazing flowers, leaves and a small bird in great detail. The Vase is quite large and heavy since it has been cut out of a Soapstone, also called steatite or soaprock. The carving, piercing and engraving was all done by hand and must have taken a very long time. The depicted flowers on a branch with a bird on it is a very decorative design and typical for Chinese design in that era. It dates back to the beginning of the 20th Century and comes from China. It is a lovely piece with nice detail and interesting colors.
Condition: In good condition. Two Chips on the back of the rim and some minor chips and scratches. Please see pictures.
Size: 12 1/2 by 6 by 4 1/2 Inches
