Chinese Agate 3 Legged Toad

Regular price $45,000

This delicate 3 Legged Agate Toad is finely carved, with charming hues and soft patina. The bold specks of reddish-brown complement the lightness of its lovely, mellowed orange body. Commonly known as Jin Chan with red bulging eyes, his super power gets far more powerful by carrying two baby toads on its back. Also commonly known as a Feng Shui money frog, it is quite possibly the most powerful symbol of money-making in Chinese culture, where it’s believed that the Toad’s presence attracts wealth into the home. Jim Chan helps attract and protect wealth, and guards against bad luck.  1 7/8" long x 1 1/8" wide x 1" high. 18th/19th Century.
