Vase, Soapstone, Hand Carved with Flowers and Branches, Chinese.

 

The oldest identifiable soapstone sculptures date back more than 3,000 years. The oldest identified soapstone crafts were made by artisans in China. Experts believe that artwork made of soapstone has survived throughout the centuries because humidity does not cause the stones to break down. The Ming Dynasty, which lasted from 1368 to 1644, saw the height of soapstone production in China. Soapstone became the standard as jade prices rose, making it too expensive for many artists.
