Chinese Tang Style Soapstone Courtesan Lady – We are assuming that this lady is made from soapstone or nephrite, it has a natural dark vein running through in several places. The painted coating has come away from the stone in places.
This Tang style lady has the appearance of a tomb object with grit embedded in the creases of the carving, we are not sure, we have found nothing to compare it with so far. Scratches on the base already evident when this piece was acquired, possibly testing to see how easily it scratched.
