What does this mean?

Hello Thie,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. I apologize for the delay in your appraisal and thank you for your patience. The item presented appears to be carving of a Japanese bodhisattva figure. Unfortunately, we are unable verify the material based on the photos provided. However, I would suggest you take the object to a gemologist for proper testing to determine material.

The marking to the underside appears to read "甲" (Kō) which translates to shell. The sculpture appears to reach about 2 to 3 feet tall. If the sculpture is indeed jade, it would likely appraise to be much more than the estimate provided. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of other comparable objects, composed of shell or a serpentine stone, in a similar height. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
