This listing is for a very nice Chinese hand carved stylized beast's head drilled to be used as a handle. I'm not sure what the original purpose was for this carving, however, today it would be great used on the end of a walking stick. The figure is well formed with nice patina from years of handling. The celadon colored jade has russet striations in the stone.
Dimensions: 1 1/8" high, 3 1/8" long and 1" wide. Weighs 95 grams.
Condition: This lovely carving is in excellent Estate condition with no noted flaws.
