Subject:Chinese Carved Jade / Stone with Animals
Posted By: Mitko Tue, May 21, 2019 IP:

I was wondering if someone here can help me with this carved stone disk shaped object.
I believe it is Chinese made of gray jade or similar very hard stone (metal blade will not scratch it). it has 3 animals which look like tigers or dragons carved in relief on one side while the other has some patterns. The color of the stone is mostly gray and white with rusty spots. When against light it kind of looks bluish purple. Any help with its age, purpose etc is appreciated! let me know if you need more pictures, close ups etc.
All the best!
