Magnificent pair of well carved Chinese hard stone seal chops. One seal chop has been canceled (customary upon the death of the owner); the other is translated to mean "through study, brings riches and honor". There is a large kylin and chi dragon with pearl on top of each seal. Between the pair of chops (four on each seal) are carved all the eight immortals. Lots of subtle decorative scenery of pine trees, tiled roofs, pillars, etc. Each corner has a scrolled dragon pillar. The pair weighs 12 lbs and stands a massive 8” high x 3” square. Dates 19th century, late 1800's.
