Mineral Carving Id again - Jadeite?


Recommended Posts

Don't feel bad.  I bought 4 De Grazia "paintings" at an estate sale(last day 50% off) for 80$

 The frames were very ornate and there were many brushstrokes visible, so  I thought what the hell...

Got them home and realized the canvas was paper and the brushstrokes  just shellac over a print:barnie:

Those marks on the bottom are usually an indicator that the item is cast. Next time you have doubts, use as hot pin or needle instead of an open flame.

Okay thanks for the info! Yes my dad also explained this to me after. Def sounds like a better idea ;).
