3 Antique Celadon Jade Split Tailed Foo Lions

Rare to find such a fine grouping still together. Three Jade creatures, obviously a family; mother, father and offspring.

The creature type is difficult to identify. It is hornless, yet has the split tail characteristic of other types of known Chinese mythological beasts. They are probably best described as Guardian Lions or Foo at rest.

The carving is intricate with teeth bared, eyes, ears, paws and legs, etc. The Jade is super high quality Celadon Nephrite in a highly translucent light green.

All three are finished with a fine old smooth polish over their entireties. Note: Thee middle sized creature (or mother form) has a small section of one side of the tail missing. Translucent High Grade Celadon Nephrite. Largest is very close to 2 inches long and the smallest is just over 1 1/2. __________________________________________________ Jackson's On Main sells high quality art and antiquities at excellent prices from both our extensive collection and from the private collections of our clients and various estates.
