White Jade Carving - Butterfly - Great Gift!

White Jade Carving - Butterfly - Great Gift!

Up for auction today is this lovely carving featuring a piece of translucent white jade that has been carved on both sides with a butterfly. The carving is very delicate and detailed. T is carved openwork throughout the piece.

My late father-in-law collected many Asian pieces, including this jade carving, in the early 1970's (before Nixon opened trade with China). We only know what he told his children about them before he died. So we can only guarantee that they have been in the US for at least 30 years (they are not brand new).

The carving is in good condition and measures 3.4" wide and 2.3" tall. It is 0.2" thick. T is a small inclusion on the back, along the right side (see photos).

Shipping/handling in the USA is $2 for USPS First Class Mail. I will add insurance at no cost to the buyer for items greater than $50. Please email for international shipping rates.

Please ask any questions or for additional close-up photos. We offer a money back guarantee on this piece - if you are not satisfied, we will return your original payment upon return of the item.
