Lightly polished to achieve a glossy finish, this red coral specimen is perfectly balanced to rest tabletop with a gestural arch. Retaining much of its natural texture, coral specimens such as this are admired for their organic forms, much like traditional scholars' rocks. Though precious coral is beautiful on its own, intricately worked figurines and snuff bottles carved from red coral became especially popular in the early Qing dynasty, due to the material's resilience, density, and brilliant color.
