Rare! Antique Chinese Pre/Imperial Period Stone Rabbit Recumbent Figurine
Antique Chinese stone rabbit recumbent figurine. This piece appears to be from the period? Pre/Imperial China symbolic of the rabbit character of the Zodiac. I believe it to be a rabbit how, however, it could a rat because both images are used in th Chinese zodiac. Rabbit recumbents were later adopted by later dynasties and merchants in the form of bronze rabbits used to weigh the amount of opium.
The features appears to be pre-Ming Dynasty based on the depiction and pose of the rabbit. The stone weighs 34 grams. It easures approximately 1 inch in height and 1.5 inches in width.
