stone vase

W80xD50xH155mm, China

This is a miniature Shou Shan stone  vase which has intricate carving of a chrysanthemum flower.  The Shou Shan stone is wonderful stone for carving, particularly for seals, its also a good material for other ornamental works.  This antique piece of work with its chipping has a sense of  rustic, of the untended nature.
