Extra Photos for Item #1182851,  A Fine Carved Jade
(AT CUSTOMER REQUEST, WE ARE POSTING A NEW SERIES OF HIGHER QUALITY PHOTOS HERE OF THIS PIECE, AND IN A DIFFERENT LIGHTING ENVIRONMENT. We hope these new photos better capture the spectacular beauty of this piece.) The original item description appears below:

From our Chinese Monochrome Collection, a fine carved jade image of Guanyin, late 19th- early 20th century, depicting the deity with a wonderful serene expression in a variation of Royal Ease mudra while sitting upon a rockwork base, and cradling a ruyi sceptre in her right arm. The jade is of pale olive tone with russet colored highlights and is rather substantial in heft, weighing almost 1.4 pounds.

Size and Condition: 5 inches tall, 4 1/4 inches wide, 1 1/2 inches thick. There is a small chip to the fingernail of the right forefinger, and an even smaller nick, really quite tiny, within one of the carved craggy areas of the rockwork base, no more than 1/16 inch. Both imperfections are very minor.
