White Jade Bird in Semi Circle
This piece may have been part of a pair or it may have been a standalone. Bird motifs are popular among jade carvers and this one has been beautifully pierced and carved. I am not quite sure what it served as but as there are no perforations for attachement, I would guess that it is an inlay piece for box or cupboard. Probably a Qing piece.
