Its a nice carving but i doubt it's nephrite Jade. Possible serpentine or maybe agate.
You would need to perform a SG test to confirm either way as it's very difficult to judge simply by a few pictures etc.
I don't think it's Old... later 20th Century carving. I can just see modem tooling that's been cleverly highly polished.
The details are lacking in the head and mouth.
The market place is flooded with similar carving often sold as Jade.
