Nephrite Bowl with interchangeable Jasper and Obsidian bases
By Helmut Wolf
Idar-Oberstein, Germany

Carved from a single piece of Russian nephrite having fantastic transulency, this magnificent bowl of boat form is deep and has a degree of thinness to the sides that demonstrates it was created by the hands of a master. Capable of standing on its own, it can also be raised either on a South African red jasper base of conical form or a black obsidian base of similar form (pictured on the website with both views). Length 17 in. Height inclusive of stand: 6 in
