GEMSTONE CARVING

LHC-132.  TOAD. This masterpiece of the hard-stone carvers’ art is sculpted from a single block of two-colored Jasper-Agate from India. I have seen and owned many carvings by Gerd Dreher over the years, but this one is my single favorite. Please note the undercut talons that are usually found on objects from Newport, Rhode Island. The artist included a small free-form piece of the original rough stone for doubters. 3-1/4x2-5/8x2-1/4.
