Thanks for stopping by......RARE ANTIQUE/VINTAGE COLD PAINTED ENAMEL & KINGFISHER FEATHER CHINESE DRAGON SIGNED SILVER BROOCHI really rate this outstanding brooch - it was an amazing find & is certainly one for the collector. It's hard to date as this is a classic Chinese design and this technique has been traditionally used for a thousand years or so. This example certainly has good age and most likely dates back to the early 1900s when lots of Chinese jewellery was made for export to Europe.It is cold painted and accented with beautiful kingfisher feathers - there is some loss to the feather detail on this brooch but it is still in pretty good condition commensurate with age. I have provided lots of photos with zoom so you can examine every inch for yourself.I'm not sure what the signature is - looks a bit like 'TEEN LEE' but I don't think that's it.This brooch measures 8cm long, weighs 4.7g and has a secure 'C' type clasp. The pin on the hinge has been repaired as shown in the photos.It tests as solid silver - it is quite tarnished and I have left it like that as many collectors prefer items in their aged condition. I tempt you with any of my other sales? Lots of GORGEOUS LITTLE THINGS to brighten up your day.
