I bought this in the gift shop of the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston years ago. I love the look and feel of it, the cool smoothness of the carved stone, the serpentine dragons. I hope the writing means good luck or you are fabulous or something. It’s two and a quarter inches long and wasn’t expensive so it’s probably not real jade unless there are some jades that are common as dirt. Ignore the cord, I struggled with that. Tough to get a smooth flowy line. I need to beef up my skills. As in PRACTICE!
