This Lovely Vintage Pair of Hand-Carved Soapstone Jars/Containers/Trinket Style “Boxes” feature an Exotic Oriental Floral Theme; leaves, trailing vines, graceful tendrils with an inset design of tiny 3-dimensional circles in the background. Soapstone is not quite as hard as Jade but can show us more details than Jade and displays a distinctive "flecked" appearance. These containers boast beautiful shades of soft heather-like greens.
These containers have a generous inside capacity to hold quite a bit. Their depths measure 1-1/2” and 1-1/4” deep.
The 2 jars show the same coloring but different designs. Each is unique in their carvings of the Florals. They each have their own distinctive, hand-crafted appeal.
Soap Stone has been used as a medium for carvings for thousands of years. Chinese craftsman have been using soapstone for centuries, and these beautiful jars are an exceptional example of both technique and style.
With their rich color and exceptional hand-crafted beauty, these unique trinket style jars or condiment jars will make a beautiful addition to your collection and décor.
Measurements: The larger of the two measures: 2-1/2" Tall x 2-1/2" Wide and the smaller jar measures 2-1/4” Tall x 2” Wide.
