Jade & Hardstone Carvings

ewter This jadeite ewer, or pitcher was created in the early 20th century using rotary tools. The skill of the Chinese carver is evident as the three colors found in a single boulder of jade are used to full advantage.

Chinese jade carving is filled with symbolism. Each plant ad creature has a meaning.
