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 small carving depicting Hotei or Laughing Buddha. It appears the figure is carved of stone. However, jade will need to be tested by a geologist to confirm. The lighter the jade, the more valuable it may be.
The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable Hotei jade carvings in a similar dimension. The estimate is contingent on the material identification. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
