A beautiful pair (mirror image) of antique Chinese hand carved soapstone bookends. Each with intricate open work hand carving of a garden pot with elaborate cascading flowers and foliage.

For maximum depth and shadowing, there is open space between the carving and the solid soapstone background.

The soapstone is a beautiful soft green best described as celery or celadon and has wonderful contrasts of grays. Circa 1920's to 1930's. "CHINA" is lightly scratched into each base.

The bookends stand 5" high, 4" wide and are 1 3/4" deep at the base.

Condition is very good with two shallow chips, deep flakes really, on the upper back corner and lower front base corner of one. Tiny dings can be felt on the edges. Overall, only minor imperfections. All open work carving is intact without cracks or breaks.

Stunning bookends that were finely rendered by a master carver.
