The pendant has flowers on one side, and good wishes written on the other. The central pendant has been added on more recently, perhaps one had been lost over the years. Most of what I sell is wearable but every once in a while I add some pieces just because I find them attractive as well as great cultural references. The ones in the preview pic (if you see it about 1 1/2 inches tall) are close to life size. I find this style of silver ingot coin very fascinating as they are made by pouring molten silver into a mold. This is a very gorgeous antique tool kit from China with a very eye catching butterfly at the top. In the center is an eye shaped pearl piece and to the sides leaves cut from stone.
According to the book: "The minorities of Vietnam and China also wear earrings with triangular elements. This is a very attractive antique Chinese silver needle case shown closed and partly open. #1 is 1 5/8 inches tall, and #2 is 1 3/4 inches long. It is 1 inch in diameter and 3/8 inch wide at the edge, a little wider in the center. These are made of silver, are traditional and antique and beautifully made. They are 1 3/16 inches tall and you need larger than European size ear holes. This is one antique silver "split" earring from Indonesia which is quite old and worn. This does make a very attractive pendant/dangle with the beautiful work on it and the very nice chain and hook to suspend it. It is heavily patinated and a few hundred years old. Here is an unusual and very collectible Pyu bronze ring from Burma. The key is 4 3/4 inches long and just under 1/4 inch at the thickets so quite heavy. The bracelet measures 2 1/4 inches by 1 3/4 inches across on the inside with an opening 1 3/8 inches wide. The ends have round decorations with dark amber coloured stones in the middle - Minority work from China. The bracelets are hinged and close firmly with lovely chains hanging down with small discs stamped with "100%". You can see a bracelet similar to this one on page 267 of "A World of Bracelets". Rather than wrapping as many do, this bracelet meets at the back. This is an antique key from Tibet, made of bronze with a nice dark patination to it. The decorative elements are cut deeply and dramatically into the silver. The bracelet has a bit of flexibility to it so opens a little wider if needed when slipping it on. It has a wire work background with decorative elements soldered onto it, decorated with enamelling. The graceful and imaginative decorations are hammered and pierced beautifully. The inside of the bracelets measure 2 inches by 2 1/4 inches.
The tallest part of the bracelets is slightly over 7/8 inch while the shortest is 5/8 inch. This is solid silver that is thickest at the ridge around the middle.
The size can be changed but only gently - perhaps a half size larger or smaller.
This is an absolutely wonderful ring from China with beautiful art work on it. It is one decorated piece of silver that has been curved into a ring shape.
I have a number of new items including about a dozen bracelets which have just been added below with various pendants and necklaces - - and click on the images to see a full size picture of each item... #2 is a pair of hairpins, very similar to each other though one has a single pin and the other has a pair. The pins also have tiny spoon shapes at the ends - I wonder if they were a cleaning tool as well? Somehow this has a contemporary quality to it as well. Any time I try one on, fastening it at my waist, I wish that such romantic items were a part of our culture as well. Nice old ones like these (and many other items) are becoming scarce now so I was happy to find these.
to ask questions or place an order please email me at: [email protected] There are some lovely antique enamelled hairpins illustrated here. The butterfly decoration is slightly over 1 1/4 inches tall.
The necklace sits very nicely and is very attractive. The oval inside of the bracelet measures 2 5/8 inches by 2 inches across. It measures 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/8 inches on the inside with a 1 inch wide opening. It has used a number of types of workmanship to create a very attractive piece. There is a little more than 20 inches of beads with four patterned beads.
