    Mesoamerican(?) carved jade

    I've followed Treasurenet now for a few months, but only have stumbled onto this section recently. I was hoping I could get a little help with the carved jade piece pictured below. The first two pieces don't belong here as they are Ching dynasty Chinese, but the third piece has a Mesoamerican flavor to it. I was hoping someone here might have come across a similar work and could help identify it. I picked them up from an estate sale about a year ago and the vendors didn't know anything about them.

    How old do you think they are?
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    A woman at the university who specializes in Asian jade told me that due to styling, my two Chinese pieces were about 150 years old. I don't think that has any bearing on the piece in question though. Purchased at an estate sale out of a basket with lots of these pieces, the vendors had no information.

    p.s. thanks for the response, I was getting ready to move the post because of no replies.

    The symbol on the front is a Chinese good luck bat symbol. Definitely not new world in origin.
