We are very proud to offer a fabulous celadon & green jade pendant (probably Burmese). It is 2.5 inches x 1.75 inches & it weighs 35 grams (175 carats). It is set in a 14 kt gold bail & it is marked such on side. The jade is very unusual in that it is carved on front, the subject being two deer in a forest, while back has a poem written in Chinese. A long time ago, about 1970, someone translated it for me & they said it was about two lovers in Northern China. It would be very hard to carve out Chinese characters in hard-stone Jade! This fantastic pendant is in original & pristine condition. It is very old but looks new. It is really beautiful. My husband got it for me over 40 years ago in San Francisco, California.
