Offering for sale a nice Asian style figure carved from soapstone. It is a pale green with dark green accent on base, possibly a Chinese god, lovely face with hand painted or accented eyes and brow. It is 6 & 1/2" tall, 2 & 1/4" wide at base, and in good condition. Not knowing what the original carver had in mind, there could be a small missing part of which we are unaware, possibly the pole he is carrying could have had something on it, but we do not see any damage other than some age wear. We acquired this from the estate of a collector of fine soapstone carvings. Not antique, but a nice vintage piece.
