I found this carving at an estate sale a few years ago. The woman running the sale said her father had brought this as well as some other Asian items home after his service in the Military. I did not ask her any other questions, she was obviously emotional. I've just had it sitting on a shelf collecting dust. I was browsing on line & ran across a very similar piece and the asking price was a pretty big number. I know how things work, just because you see something for a high price does not mean that is what its worth. I guess I am more interested in what type of Jade if that is even what it is? ( I am pretty sure it is, but what do I know?) Is it a Foo Dog, Lion or? Is it a mid century 1950 carving, maybe older, maybe newer etc? Any info would be awesome, thanks in advance, and thanks for looking.
