perhaps any friendly soul here may be able to help me out in the quest of the age of this carvings.
Its spinach green nephrite Jade of good quality ( in my opinion; no clumsy made chemical alteration signs found - density ca. 3 , mh ca. 6.x )
Carving quality is not quite "top notch" but good enough to pass for late qing pieces - definitely no tourist crap. ( mane and general smoothing of the lions figure; dynamic form and scales / details of the dragon )
The dragon is about 14 cm long, for reference.
Especially the dragon is often copied these days - but i found no recent carving of this quality and material.
Any opinion is most appreciated;
