Vintage Chinese Carved Jade Necklace
Up for sale is a finely carved jade necklace - one of two jade necklaces we are offering this week on . Both of the necklaces are from the estate of a wealthy doctor’s wife who passed away about 25 years ago. She did most of her collecting on their travels around the world in the 1940’s and 50’s. They lived in the wealthiest area of St. Petersburg, Florida, on Snell Isle.
We are not experts on jade, but both of the necklaces on sale this week appear to be jade or jadeite and are cool to the touch. A scratch test was administered, but did not scratch meaning that the stones on the necklaces are at the very least as hard as jade.
The finely carved jade necklace on a silk cord has a delicately pierced-carved archaic butterfly form pendant accented with 8 luminous carved carnelian flower blossom forms. One of the carnelian blossoms has two miniscule and barely noticeable chips on the petals. The necklace is otherwise in good condition. Hangs on neck quite nicely and wears comfortably. When the silk chord necklace is pulled flat it measures 15” long to the top of the carved jade pendant. The jade pendant itself measures 1 ¼” x 2 ¼” wide._gsrx_vers_473 (GS 6.4.1 (473))
