Subject:JADE? GREEN CARVING - DUCK
Posted By: Jimmy N Mon, Mar 12, 2018 IP: 184.98.151.158

This old carved duck is 9" long, 5 3/4" tall, and 2 3/4" wide. It didn't have the base with it, when discovered. I added it, because it seemed to fit the style.
I am not versed in Asian art, but I am going to list many items that I have collected, from Asia, for over 60 years.
Thank you for any information that you may have.
If it is Jade, could it be from China? From what period?
I appreciate your input, very much.
Sincerely,
Jimmy N

this duck is not old, the material looks like a serpentine, not Jade

Thank you, so much, Ernest. I appreciate your expertise and your time. I didn't overpay, so I am not disappointed.
Best regards,
