This listing is for the old Chinese Jade garment hook that you see inthe photos. I purchased it from an old antique dealer that said thathe purchased it about 50 years ago from an estate sale. He also saidthat it thought it to be antique. Some research and my limitedexperience with jade tells me that is all possibly correct. I leaveit to the buyer to decide where it was carved and when. I have not shown it to anyone since purchasing it.
It measures close to3 ½ inches long. It weighs close to 35 grams. I have not tested itbut I believe it to be jade. I am guessing that it is nephrite jade.I leave it to the buyer to decide what kind of jade it is.
The green parts looklike an olive green to me. The lighter shades of the olive green alsohave a kind of russet shade. The lighter parts range from a lightshade of olive green to a very light shade of a blueish green thatsometimes looks like a very pale shade of just blue to me. I amguessing that it might be properly called celadon white. How it looksdepends somewhat upon the lighting.
The condition ismuch like you see it in the photos. It is in excellent condition withno damage. The photos show a very tiny notch along an edge that Ibelieve is from when it was made. The photos also show some very tinyshort dark lines in the design that look like they might be soil. Ihave a difficult time seeing them on the actual hook. Otherwise, itis fine and as shown.
Iguaranteethisjadehooktobe as described and represented by the photos and video. The photosare part of the description. Please look at all of them.
I allow three business days for shipping but I usually ship the same or next day if possible.
Please know that the lighting in my photos is uneven and that there might be shadows or reflections. The colors on my monitor look close to but not exactly like the actual colors. Different monitors may show different colors. I often say that an item measures or weighs “close to” because in my opinion no measurements are exact and some things are difficult to measure.
I like to leave response after I know that the item has arrived and that the buyer is satisfied.

I frequently purchase signature delivery for my more valuable packages because of the possibility of them being stolen off of a porch or damaged by weather. I often but not always ship the same or the next day. Often, I have a double wall box custom made for larger items and that might result in a short delay. When I use packing peanuts, they are usually biodegradable. Sometimes, I use used boxes.
Please email me with any questions or suggestions. I do not ship on weekends. I might not be available to answer email on weekends.
