Old Chinese Jade carving of a unicorn, Qilin. Greenish Jade with brownish spots. It is real Jade and doesn't scratch. The figurine is from the first part of last century.

The unicorn is well carved and it has a strong expression. There is a brown line at the tail-part but this is part of the stone, no crack or fissure.

Size: 14,7 x 7 x 11,5 cm, (c. 6 x 3 x 4 ½ inches). 1016 gram (c. 2 pounds). Good condition. It looks great and stands out.

The qilin (Chinese: 麒麟; pinyin: qílín) is a mythical hooved chimerical creature known in Chinese and other East Asian cultures, said to appear with the imminent arrival or passing of a sage or illustrious ruler. It is a good omen thought to occasion prosperity or serenity. It is often depicted with what looks like fire all over its body.
