    hi i was wondering if someone could ID this carved soapstone for me? It has a carved town on one side and on the other side it has carved men with a tree. Also comes with wooden stand. Thank you for any info!

    Chinese, looks a bit rude and crude though, but maybe that's the pic?

    Does it slide off the base? If so see if you can scratch the bottom with your fingernail.
