Decorative Pair of Chinese Carved Soapstone on Lacquer Plaques, Elders Offered here is a lovely pair of carved soapstone on lacquer plaques. I do not know the age of these, but if I had to guess, I'd say probably mid 20th century. Each measures just under 13" long and about 7 3/8" wide and aside from some superficial scuffing here and there and just a suggestion of edgewear in a couple of places, I seen no damage or repair.

Condition Notes: Since certain words are open to interpretation, here is a short synopsis of the meaning we attach to various terms relevant to condition. In all cases, anything that we believe is outside the boundaries of accepted norms will be fully described in the listings. PERFECT. Implies the piece is free of chips, cracks, or hairlines. Expect reasonable signs of use and age and/or minor original manufacturing flaws. FLAWLESS: Implies that the piece was originally made without any flaws and is undamaged as outlined under PERFECT. You may expect to see some reasonable signs of use such as normal and usually validating bottom wear, but anything beyond that will not be described as FLAWLESS. MINT: A word we almost never use, implies that a piece has no flaws, no wear, no sign of use, no damage -- and to all intents and purposes, remains as pristine as the day it was made.
