Authentic sculpted jade item of jewellery, a lion, from the second half of the 20th century.

Weight: 91.85 g

This jewel/amulet was put in a pocket/or worn as a pendant to give strength, tenacity at work to its owner.

Private collection started by my grandfather, who was born in 1886 and was a French doctor in Indochina.

My grandfather (1886-1967), former officer in the French Army, was in Indochina from 1911 to 1934 and collected this jade piece as well as numerous objects from this area.

Until his death, he collected pieces that reminded him of his stay there.

Careful delivery with tracking.
