Chinese soapstone carving.
« on: September 27, 2016, 04:23:04 PM »
12 by 6 inches, well carved, not sure what the wood is, does anyone think it could be late 19th early 20th ?  ;D

Yours looks like it might be of a similar era to this one, Keith: http://www.xupes.com/Antiques-Fine-Art/Product-Details/2078/Chinese-Soapstone-Wooden-Plaque/Antique-Chinese-Inlaid-Soapstone-Wooden-Plaque-19th-C.html but it doesn't state what the wood is there either.
Cheers!

Did you see this one Keith?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANTIQUE-CHINESE-CARVED-SOAPSTONE-OVERLAID-WOOD-PANEL-FRENCH-FLEA-MARKET-FIND-/153062621577

Is it solid piece of timber, or could it be made up of bamboo strips?
