Hello, Thank you for choosing Mearto for your online appraisal. Based on the images and information you provided, this item is: A pair of Chinese hand carved black jade bird figures, from most likely mid 20th century. No signature or mark. These intricately carved birds are a testament to the superb craftsmanship and artistic prowess of Chinese jade carvers during that period. The use of black jade, a rare and prized material, adds to the value and allure of these sculptures. The intricate detailing on these bird figures is a hallmark of the craftsmanship of the era. The carvings often depict birds in various poses, with their feathers, beaks, and eyes meticulously etched into the surface of the black jade. Each feather seems to come to life as the light reflects off the polished stone, and the birds are often perched on delicate branches or rocks, adding an element of naturalism to the pieces.
