This is a wonderful antique turtle figure or paperweight which I believe was made in Japan around the turn of the century or earlier. It’s a fairly heavy piece for its size, with great detail and wonderful, natural look. Reflects the Victorian aesthetic for all these Oriental and all things from nature. Measures 3 1/8 x 2 1/2”, weighs 10 ounces. Fabulous dark patina achieved only from age & handling.

Unmarked. There is a indent on the underside of the piece but it appears to be a casting flaw, not damage. A wonderful little piece of fine Asian art!
