Carving-Very Deep, Rich Green Jade Carved Fish, 20th Century Chinese
This fish was carved from a block of very deeply colored Jade, as opposed to the common light, sometime translucent, colors of Jade and Jadeite. It is about 5 inches long and the color in the photos is quite accurate: It is a very deep and rich color green. If you appreciate carved jad it certainly has a very traditional color and look to it. Like the next item, we estimate that this piece is from early-to-mid-20th century and likely Chinese in origin. From a collection we purchased with very little information. But I liked the pieces and, more as a collector than a seller, just bought them!
