Suzhou-style Jade Carving
Suzhou is one of the places of origin of Chinese jade carving. By the Tang dynasty (618-907), workshops of jade carving were established. By the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), Suzhou artisans became famous throughout the country. Suzhou-style jade carvings are mainly small pieces, most of which are vases, figures, flowers and animals. Traditional decorative workmanship was applied to the carvings, and the curios are exquisite and graceful.
