GORGEOUS ANTIQUE Carved Figure of a Wine / Libation Cup w/ Dragon handle and 3 feet/legs. This piese is Carved out of some type of natural stone/rock material. The color looks like a type of white jade but in a rough form with lots of brown/yellowish tones. And it is probably softer than a hard nephrite jade. Not sure what it is exactly, but it is older and Chinese in origin. I have found one other in old sale archives that looks like this and they thought it was Jade. Measures: 4-3/4″ tall by 3-3/4″ long by 1-1/4 thick. It is carve like a “Jue” Form cup like you would see on the tripod cups from the Shang Dynasty, this one is smaller though and I dont believe it was meant for drinking from. More like a representation piece of one you would drink from. CONDITION: There is no damage or chunks or chips missing from what I an see. Looks good for its age. The surface is dry though, it could be polished with wax like you would with jade and it would really shine up more and be protected for years to come- you can find directions online about how waxing jade is important to keep pieces from naturally drying out with time. This is for 2 reasons- I provide photos of the exact items and not stock pictures so you can always see the exact item you will get. All of my items are insured against damage in transit, I pay extra for this!
