Finely carved light celadon jade of 3 rams and auspicious symbol. This carving dates to the early 20th c., c. 1920. The large carving depicts 3 rams, a larger ram (male/parent), with 2 smaller (offsprings/siblings), in a circle and biting stylized lingzhi and other auspicious symbols. The jade is very tactile and has an unctuous, nearly white celadon color with areas of russet-beige skin.

I've added a short 3-minute video(url) from Antique Roadshow from 2015 about a pair of white jade RAM's of the same period valued at $15,000-25,000 below. Copy and paste it into your address bar to view.
