I think it is very nice. A thought: it appears to have two positions:
1) Standing upright
2) Resting on the raised oval on the back/bottom.
In the second position, it might be used as a brush wash (but it might be too shallow).

Cheers,
Stan

Very nice carving.
As already noted by our esteemed member Ernest its highly probable to be jadeite jade.

To be fair, one also has to test if it is a natural color or if it is artificially dyed. Because it is a difficult stone to test, many experts refuse to test Jadeite.
