Carved Jade God of Longevity: Shou Xing in Stone
$2400.00

This large natural water worn jade is in the shape of a flattened oblong stone. It fits well in the palm of the hand and feels like it has been held that way for generations.

It measures about 3.75 inches by 2 inches by 1.5 inches in depth.

It has a carved figure of Shou Xing nestled within the stone, wrapped in a leaf and with a bat holding a ruyi in its mouth resting spread winged below him. Often, a Ru Yi is depicted with a bat. The bat symbolizes health and longevity. It is considered to be a lucky object, adding good luck to the powers of the Ruyi.

this carving was carefully crafted from a natural water worn piece of either nephrite or jadeite-we are not sure which-but we guarantee it to be jade.

This is an outstanding fondling piece-one we are tempted to keep, but with thousands of pieces already, we can't keep them all.

We estimate that this substantial jade(it weighs 8.27 troy ounces or 257.22 grams) dates from about the middle of the 20th century or possibly earlier.

It is in excellent condition. The buyer will not be disappointed.
