A vintage relatively heavy carved hardstone desk weight in the form of a frog. It is believe to be made from agate, or similar, rather than jade, but we can’t be certain.
The base has various markings (see photographs) which we have been unable to decipher. We believe the desk weight to be oriental in origin.
Although structurally sound, there are quite a few scuff and/or bruising marks which we have tried to show in the photographs.
The desk weight stands approximately 2.25in high and measures approximately 2.375in by just under 2.375in (at its longest and widest) at the base. Weighs just under 290g. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first or middle part of last century.
