This fascinating small find was a weight from long ago in China to weigh opium. I have several from the same estate, each has a different animal from the Chinese calendar. Small enough to keep as a good luck charm; rare enough to deserve a place in your etagere.

Country of Origin: China.

Medium: Jade with metal band and rat on top.

Size: 1 5/8 inches tall, 1 5/8 inches wide, 1/2 inch deep.

Condition: The jade is in very good undamaged condition. The metal shows expected age wear, but has no losses.
