This nicely carved light green and russet jadeite monkey with peach is a very interesting item because of the significance of the peach. In Chinese mythology the peach is a symbol of Long Life. That is why I love to give birthday gifts, such as the mudmen I have listed, with a peach depicted. This is just adorable. The Coloration is mostly celadon with small areas of tan and brown.
Size: 3 1/4" x 4"
Condition: Very Good with just minor wear.
Circa: Mid 20th Century or earlier.
Great for a very unique desk item.
