Offered for sale is this fabulous Amber carving of Mythical Beasts. I believe this fine carving is Circa 19th century. This finely sculpted peace measures 3,75 inches in height, 3.75 inched width and 1.75 inches deep The t0otally impressive sculpture weighs in at a whopping 200 mg. The carving appears to show two Hydras facing each other and sitting atop a fire breathing Dragon which is wrapped around a shell, which may house the sought after pearl. The piece is a rich honey amber color and is sure to be a welcomed addition to any fine Asian collection. The condition of the piece is excellent with one small crack on the base and a very small area that could possibly to remove an unwanted inclusion. This is true amber with a hardness of 3.0 and is conductive of static electricity. Please feel free to email any questions and/or request any additional pictures.
