Circa Second half of the Eighteenth Century
This delightful and elegant jade animal is depicted striding with open mouth. The nephrite jade is icy white with deep russet red markings. The piece has a characteristic high gloss polish typical of jades worked in the second half of the Eighth century. The subject matter, workmanship and dramatic material suggest a second half of the 18th. century date for this remarkable work of art.
Together with a yellow silk fitted base with contrasting blue coloration.
