Dragon Pendant Chinese Sterling and Carved Scrimshaw Necklace
This year of the dragon pendant is a unique hand crafted piece and is most likely one of a kind. The pendant is made of carved and scrimshaw etched bone and the dragon is stained Chinese red and soft pale green. The large round design has a hand crafted sterling silver bezel and a large ornate bail.
I cannot be certain when this pendant was made but there are dates on the back and the artists initials. The Year of the Dragon dates on the back are 1952,1964,1976,1988, and 2000. As the styling of the bail is rather modern, I would assume the pendant was made in 1988 or 2000, but the pendant has antique styling.
Large in size, the pendant is 1 3/8" or 36 mm wide. The glistening silver metal chain is a new chain, 28" or 71 cm long. ( The chain is not sterling silver).
The pendant is in pristine clean perfect condition with no imperfections or flaws. There are no signs of wear and no scratches, scuffs, or chips. The sterling is clean and bright and the bezel is signed 925.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in new luxury presentation necklace box.
