Lovely huge jade carving of a Tiger or Dragon, Chinese, Achaistic style of the Zhou Dynasty, likely 19th.-20th. century, but could be much older.

Perhaps the most impressive large plaque we've every had, combined an exceptional choice of jade stone with artistic qualities in the carving and polishing. The stone is spinach green in the central areas, gradually changing to a deep mahogany at the rim and tail - fantastic piece that would be a highlight in any collection...
