Item Description

Our Chinese sources have furnished us with another striking example of the mineral bounty of their country. This is a New Find of carved and polished jasper picture stone from a less well-known area. This striking, two-sided, LARGE CABINET, piece has two outdoor, country scenes of sparsely covered, wooded hillsides below a grayish sky. They look like paintings from Chinese murals or room dividers. Art in stone. The measurements include the custom-made wooden base. This specimen, to my taste, has the best "scenery" of the pieces we have offered at auction to date. 7.3 pounds or 3.3 kilos.
