Art Deco Gray Stone Chinese Stamp with Hand Carved Guardian Lion Motif

About

This beautiful Art Deco stamp was realized in China, circa 1925. It features a volumetric rectangular body crowned with a hand carved guardian lion (a Chinese leitmotif) and accompanying pup, climbing its hind leg- all realized in gray stone, offering a naturally rich variegated texture. The stamp is incised on the bottom with a Chinese character, whose silhouette is surrounded by carnelian red ink (a color associated with luck in Chinese culture). With its impeccable craftsmanship and stunning form, this piece is not only a functional stamp, but an objet d'art in its own right that would be a winning addition atop any side table or desk. It is in excellent condition. China, circa 1925 Dimensions: 1.25" W x 1.25" D x 3.5" H.
