These type of stone stamps are for signing artwork, important documents, cards, letters, etc. This stamp set has a soapstone that looks like a marbled column/pillar with a Chinese Dragon wrapping around the top. The dragon is hard to see, but in the photo above, I show where it's head begins and starts to wrap around. The stamp itself has been carved "COX 考克" and would be a unique gift for someone with the last name Cox. This set also includes the white and blue porcelain dish containing the red ink. Both items have been used. As you may see in the photos, red ink still remains on the stamp crevices from use. The ink has also been used and re-sealed.
