    Hi, the motif is Chinese, based on the trim and ornamentation, but without marks, can't say if it was made in China. It's not jade, from the pictures it could be porcelain or glass, guessing glass. Perhaps gold leaf decoration applied unprofesionally after manufacture. I'm not much help here, maybe someone who has seen a similar piece can comment. Good luck, Jim
