This VASE is Best DESCRIBED as FANTASTIC. Acquired from a SUPERLATIVE ESTATE of a Maryland JUDGE who liked the BEST, this is a CARVED SODALITE HARDSTONE VASE. In Two Pieces the BOTTOM section Depicts a PHOENIX and a MAIDEN; the Second Side has QUAN YIN and a CHILD. The TOP Depicts a CARVED DRAGON. The CARVING is EXCEPTIONAL with much PIERCED Work Top to Bottom/ Side to Side including Two FROGS on LILLY PADS at the Shoulders of the Vase. Due to the lack of GOLDSTONE One must determine this is SODALITE; this CARVING measuring 5.5" Across X 9" Tall. In EXCELLENT CONDITION the Vase dates circa first 1/4 of the 20th Century. This is an AMAZING CARVING that will ENHANCE the COLLECTION.
