Early 20th Century Chinese Hand-Carved Greenery Melon

About

This unique melon sculpture was made in the Liaoning region of China over a hundred years ago, and was hand shaped out of the finest quality jade stone. The stone has stunning, natural patterning: the light and dark greens swirl together and give the stone character and depth. The jade stone is as durable as it is lovely and would look beautiful nestled among the greenery in your garden.
