    Hi all, been a while. Hope everyone is staying safe during this lockdown. The lockdown has given me time to go through all our collections and clean them!

    Here I have what looks like hard green carved stone but my husband thinks it's jade. I've lots of small carvings, this one measures 4.5cm x 3cm. It's a carved monkey and on the back is an inserted metal circular lozenge which reads St Petersberg 1892 and in the middle are initials that look like a capital C then lowercase f. I would love to know who the maker is so I can maybe buy others.

    Thanks everyone, stay safe,

    Marsha

      I think this may be vast instead of carved. The manufacturer mark on the bottom doesn't look carved.

      Not vast, cast

      Thanks flashlarue, the mark on the base isn't carved, the mark is a metal insert. Does this help?
