This vintage Chinese Guan Yin figurine is hand-carved of genuine amethyst gemstone.
The purple stone carving is highly detailed with the seated figure enjoying her two playful foo dogs.
The carving measures 5 3/4 inches across the front by 4 inches wide by 3 1/2 inches high. It sits in a wooden stand that was carved out specifically to fit this stone carving.
As we were checking this over with a magnifier, we noticed a faint crack along the back. Following it around with the magnifier, we can see that it goes around to the front and has apparently been reglued. From the front, it would be the right side piece including the foo dog and the hand. The repair is so well done that we never would have noticed it without the magnification. Of course, this effects our price which is now considerably less than when we started this write-up.
Overall, the stone has a smooth polished surface with natural flaws in the gemstone. In spite of the barely visible repair, this displays well and is still a valuable carving.
