Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

 

This is a great piece acquired in 2001 from an estate sale in Orange County California.  The Pixiu is a hybrid creature that is meant to be a protector of Feng Shui practitioners.  It was hand carved, polished and is probably from mid- to late-1900s period.

 

The greenish – brown tint to jade is quite stunning.

 

Small chip over right eye brow but otherwise in very good condition.  Bottom of paws are numbered, probably a lot number at the estate sale.

 

Stand is not for sale. 6” tall x 7” at widest x 2” deep
