First edition vintage collectable

Jade is known for it’s healing powers and mystical properties. It’s hardness factor is similar to quartz, and because it’s a challenge to carve, inferior jade sculpture is easy to spot. 

This beautifully hand carved jade grizzly bear family trio highlights the skills of a professional artist. The piece is carved from a lustrous spinach green nephrite jade mined from Alaska, home to some of the largest deposits of the world’s finest nephrite jade. It features mama grizzly and her two cubs about to enjoy a nice meal, each with a fresh caught salmon in their mouths. The trio are standing on a natural shaped triangular jade base, with a small natural finish jade facade behind them.

The mama bear with salmon is appx. 3” long and 2” tall. The overall size of the piece is appx. 4” x 6 1/2” x 2 1/8″” tall and weighs exactly one pound. The surface is smooth and polished, with a very minor vein inclusion on the back of the mama grizzly, otherwise it’s in pristine condition with no chips or scratches.

The shuttle has opening payload doors, external fuel tank and dual rocket motors, a moveable Canada robot arm, and more. Detailed instructions for assembly, painting and decal application.

The shrink wrap has never been removed from the box, so the internal contents are still in their original bags. Most of the photos are from other sources, showing the way the box looks when first opened, how it looks unassembled, as well as the fully assembled kit. This kit is unopened and unassembled.

The box measures 20″ x 30″ x 5″. The shrink wrap is a little beat up and torn primarily on the corners, but the printing on the box is in very good shape and preserved from being in a plastic bag most of the last 30 years. The shrink wrap contracted over the years, making one large wrinkle on the front of the box, but it’s unlikely to have affected the contents.
