This is an exceptionally carved and especially pleasing late Qing Dynasty FOO DOG and PUPPY carved of fine lavender jadite. Sculpted in great detail this is a fairly large carved work. Mamma and her puppy with a brocade ball and bilowing ribbon are totally adorable. The Foos recline on a detailed carved and cut out plinth made especially for the sculpture.
This very special winsome sculptural carving dates to turn of the century or earlier. If there is such a thing as personality in carving, it shows in this figural sculpture.
Dimensions: About 8" Condition; Excellent
