Description
A striking and superbly carved conjoined pair of tigers, possibly male and female (one larger, one smaller and crouching) produced from colour contrasting tiger's eye with characteristic sheen. One tiger wraps its tail around the other and it can clearly be seen that both of the big cats are open-mouthed in an aggressive stance and displaying their teeth. Tiger's eye is a widely used chatoyant gemstone and hails from countries such as Australia, Burma, India and South Africa, among others. This carving has been produced by a master of gemstone carving with its intricacy and very fine detail and probably dates from the third quarter of the 20th century. The heavy in the hand carving measures 8.25 cm (longest) x 5.5 cm (widest point), exhibits a stunning lustre/contrasting colouration and is in excellent condition with natural striations.
