 "SOLD" Thank you,Taiwan 
In the form of a reclining ox with its head slightly raised,the right foreleg bent at the knee and the other three folded beneath the body.Its horns and tail realistically detailed with fine incisions,further carved showing its ribs and firm spine.The superb greenish jadeite color with its natural brown inclusions add to the beauty of this fine carving. Condition:Excellent. Circa:Late Qing Dynasty(1900-1920)Size:4 1/2"wide. A very good carving of one of the Chinese zodiac animals that represents Spring.
