Chinese celadon-green jade carving of Liu Hai's legendary three legged toad with a hydra dragon on its back. The carving suggests that it is from Song period, but we are dating it later at circa 1900. Could have been a toggle as there is a hole between the front legs to aid in suspension, see last photo. Measures 2.3" x 1.3" (6 cm x 3.5 cm)
