Late Qing Dynasty (1880s to 1911) Chinese soapstone seal carved on top with a resting rooster, its head turned to the left. Wonderful quality carving on variegated soapstone with colors ranging from tan to yellow to red. The bottom is carved with four raised characters that can be translated as HALL OF BRIGHT RISING SUN, red seal paste in the grooves. Great scholar’s object with understated beauty. Height 1 inch, base 1 3/8 inches long.
