This hand carved soapstone seal measures approx. 4" tall and 1 1/4" by 1 1/4" wide; this is known as a "chop", the individual signature of an artist or writer. The top of this seal has a carved tiger and is in the original box. A chop is a signature stamp used to sign documents and to show ownership of artwork. This is a lovely art object or may be added to a calligraphy set. I have a variety of similar items listed here, and will combine orders for discount and shipping savings.
