Delightful and very well carved late 18th century stone Chinese figure from an old estate. At first I thought this was jade, but after examining it I believe that it is a softer stone like soapstone. The stone has faded from over 200 yeas of exposure to light. The bottom is a dark green , as it has not been exposed to light, and has retained the original color of the underlying stone (no photo of the bottom). The condition is excellent, as seen in the photos. Stands almost 6 inches tall.
