Walking stick (1) - Jade (untested), Wood - Lion - Spazierstock mit Jadelöwe - China - Early 20th century
Fair condition (restored), see description - 91×14.5×3.3 cm

A very beautiful and elegant walking stick with a handle made of light green jade.
Carved, depicts a lion.
Traces of gold plating in the recesses.
The stick is made of root wood with a metal cap on the tip.
I believe that the handle has previously cracked in two places and was restored.
Can be seen best in the photos with lighting.
Probably from around 1900.
