Chinese Jade Sculpture of Pig Figure | Signed on Reverse
Here we have a Chinese jade sculpture of a pig figure, in a vest and hat, gripping some sort of tool. Yep, run of the mill piece. I've looked everywhere and I can't find anything like it. The mixture of the black iron shade, especially around the eyes, amongst the beautiful jade, is a sight to behold. The photos don't do it justice. This fella has a look that won't quit. He'll make you uneasy and fascinated at the same time.
The jade artwork come out of a serious collector of Asian antiques in the Twin Cities. She spent decades building the collection. This was a piece in the collection. The sculpture is signed on the back. I can't figure out the artist, so we have a mystery artist on our hands. I'm open to any thoughts or ideas. I'm not sure about age. I'm guessing 1960s but it's purely a guess.
The rare vintage Chinese sculpture stands 6" tall, 2 3/4" wide, and 2" deep. The piece is solid and smooth. The sculpture has a couple chips on the ears (see pics). Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO boxes). Free shipping on the rare pig sculpture.
He'll haunt you and protect you. And he has a sweet hat.
