Wonderful, vintage carved stone animal figurine of carved Tiger's Eye Tiger figurine, dating to the early 20th Century. The carving depicts a stalking Tiger, with a strong muscular body, mouth open showing it's fangs. Some incised lines around the face and around the body depicting the animals fur. The paws are nicely described. Note there is an old but very good repair of the Tail and one of the Tiger's fangs is missing. Tiger's Eye is a handsome stone with beautiful coloring of deep brown and amber colors. The animal was clearly carved with the directional amber striping in mind. Photos show the Tiger well and give a good feel for the piece. Photographs were taken with a camera flash....the piece is darker in normal lighting. Is a very good size, measuring approximately 6" long and approximately 2" high. The piece is unusual, fine and wonderfully carved.
