CHINESE JADE CARVING OF A MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURE

This nephrite jade carving is a pale celadon to yellow jade altered to brown overall.

It appears to have been buried for an extended period of time, based on the level of alteration or oxidation.

We conservatively estimate that this antique nephrite jade dates to the late 19th - early 20th century.

It may actually be much older. Please view the detailed photos carefully.

The buyer will not be disappointed.

It measures 80 mm x 45mm x 12 mm in depth.

It is in very good condition with the exception of a slight loss to one wing tip, which appears to have happened ages ago because it shows wear and toning consistent with the rest of the carving.

The shape of the tail is unusual in that it looks like a sea monster . Without its pointed beak, it could be mistaken for a dragon or a kylin.
