Vintage SOAPSTONE Vase Sculpture with Monkey, Faun, Flowers, Birds // 7 1/2"w ll gu15

Price: $79.00 (BASE not Included) Ref # 903 – gu15

I was able to purchase this wonderful example of Chinese Folk Art in Red Soapstone at a very low price because of the damage to the vase on the left. I have priced it appropriately as most Soapstone sculptures of similar size and craftsmanship sell for over $200.00 at auction.

It was so beautiful I had to rescue it and hopfully find a great new home !

Two large Vases are decorated with a Monkey covering his eyes, a Leaping Fawn, Birds, Flowers and Fauna. I find it particularly interesting the way the artist selected a piece of Ancient Soapstone with Black veining to accent the bottom of the carving.

Soapstone is quarried like Granite and Marble and is found all over the world. It can range in age from 300 to 400 million years old and has been prized for centuries for hundreds of applications, from Jewelry, Figurines, and beautiful works of art, to Counter Tops.

Soapstone is a naturally occurring mineral called steatite and its primary components are magnesite, dolomite, chlorite, and talc. The talc in soapstone is soft to the touch, and gives the smooth feeling of rubbing a piece of dry soap. Thus the name was derived - "Soap" Stone. (No. You can't wash with it.)

This artifact deserves to be showcased, designed to be admired, guaranteed to attract attention, and should be treasured forever. Collectors and enthusiasts...here is your opportunity!
