A hardstone pendant in a creamy white color. Wonderful fatty luster, silky texture and good translucence. It measures approximately 2 inches in diameter and is carved on both sides. Weight is 24.6 grams. Mutton fat jade is the most sought after form of nephrite, and this piece is very fine quality mutton fat. The theme is bats and coins. In Chinese symbolism, the bat is a symbol of happiness and joy. The Chinese word for bat sounds identical to the word for good fortune making bats a popular Chinese rebus or visual pun. Two bats, as depicted in this jade carving, means double luck. When a bat symbol is shown with a coin, it means fortune before your eyes. Another great visual pun.
