Hello, my name is***** am a certified appraiser and I authenticate ancient jade. I do see the photos you have uploaded here and I appreciate these. Can you please post a few photos of the piece......... I would like to see the underside of this piece and then a view of the top/front of his head where his eyes are. This will help me in determining the age and the creature that he is. I can tell he is ancient by the break down of the jade in the crystallizing that has taken place and the chicken boning that has begun within the jade. This item has been cleaned at one time and waxed which is common in ancient jades being sold through stores and auction houses. I prefer not to clean ancient jades as it keeps the aging authentic however either way does not hinder the value. You have a wonderful piece and I look forward to helping you on this item.
