ORIENTAL CHOP // As Is // Rustic Condition / 3 1/4" High

Price: $49.00 Ref # 903EB

This particular stamp is in very rustic condition, but will be would be an unusual accessory or addition to your Asian Stone Collection. I can see it as a small paperweight.

The Dragon theme carved in High-Relief on the top is primatively designed and the bottom has Chinese Calligraphy writing.

Not heavy, less than 1 pound probably.

The pictures do not indicate that it is Perforated where you see the dark spots so it is like Lattice Work. It rattles with something inside that was part of the original fabrication. Probably a residual piece that was poked through to make the holes.

The construction is characteristically rustic and perhaps primitive by Western standards, but it is actually an art to be appreciated.

Do not know the material for this object, but believe it is oxidized and Tarnished IRON. Very primitive and sold AS IS.

Despite its small size, the chop plays an extremely important role in the life of a Chinese.

A seal, (“CHOP”) from East Asia is the general name for the stamps and impressions that are used in lieu of signatures in official documents, contracts, art, or any item requiring acknowledgment or authorship.

To further increase the refinement and beauty of the design, chop engravers may, in addition to carving the stamping surface, created an elaborate sculpture on the top of the chop.

Traditionally, the most common materials for making chops were copper for the general population, and jade for the emperor and nobility.

COLORS: Beige, Brown, Greenish.

MATERIALS: Oxidized and Tarnished IRON.

ORIGIN or INFLUENCES: China, Asia, Oriental / Unsigned

CONDITION: This particular item was probably never intended to be completely smooth and has a typical patina enhanced by age and wear. I believe the distressing adds to the character and history of the piece, therefore, I would NOT recommend cleaning the surface.

Age appropriate / USED Item / Please look carefully at the pictures to reveal over all over all condition. Doubtful that the imprint will be legible.
