A GOOD CHINESE SOAPSTONE SEAL, 17TH ~ 19TH CENTURY

This is a fairly large seal carved with a recumbent deer and pine tree, a bat flying overhead. The stone has a nice patina from handling and it is in excellent condition except for a couple of small shallow flakes on the sharp edge of the rim, just wear from normal use really.

Approximately 3.1/2 inches ( 9cm) wide, 2.7/8 inches (7.3cm) high.

Please study the photographs.
