No there is no marks on this Item,I believe is a Chinese jade Lizard,but dont know the age or how much is worth.

Regards

Pedro

Using my resources to look into your inquiry, I was able to find comparable sales that give your lizard a current secondary market value of $50 - $80 USD at auction or in a private sale.

Sincerely,

Alan C. Ransdell, ISA AM, AOA AM, CA

To get more information (and to possibly sell this piece if desired) I would recommend that you get in contact with an auction house that I have had many dealings with in the past. He is a very reputable seller of Antique Asian Items as well as things such as Art to Ivory. I believe he will be able to help you better than anyone here. Please see his website http://www.chait.com/ you will need to send him pictures as well as these descriptions of what you have. Make sure you just ask for an auction estimate. Do not request an appraisal. Email Joey Chait directly at***@******.***. Thinking you are going to consign it with them will usually lead to a free appraisal. ;-)

Alan C. Ransdell, ISA AM, AOA AM, CA
