Vintage Chinese Carved Turquoise Bead Fish Enamel Pendant Necklace:
Vintage Chinese Carved Turquoise Bead Fish Enamel Pendant Necklace This sale is for a uniquely designed and colorful, carved turquoise bead and enamel pendant necklace, that was made in China.This piece measures 15 3/4" long, with the pendant dropping another 1 1/2" below that, and is 1 1/4" wide at its widest point. This piece has carved beads that are carved all the way through - I'm not sure if they are machine made or hand made but I suspect they are done by hand as there are slight irregularities in the size and design of the patterning. I'm not sure what the material is that the beads are made from - my guess though is that the turquoise beads are dyed and are the same material as the cream colored beads. There is one turquoise bead that had cracked and chipped, it is still on the strand (which you can see in one of the photos), but it is not two complete halves and cannot be repaired. There are more small cracks and irregularities to the carvings but they are noticeable only upon very close inspection and there are no cracks that seem to jeopardize the bead itself from breaking. At some point this necklace was re-strung, it is strung on sturdy white cotton string, and closes with a spring ring clasp that is not original to the piece. The strand is secure, there is no loosening or gaps in the strand, and the strand is symmetrical without any missing beads. The cream colored beads are framed by end caps that are finished with deep blue enameling. There is quite a bit of wear and chipping to the blue enamel - I would say it is 50-60% intact. I think that the fish pendant is original to the piece but I'm not positive. The pendant is double sided with the fish and enamel design on both sides. The pendant is just slightly puffy and there is some thinning and chipping to the enamel - it is 80% intact on the pendant. Overall this is a uniquely designed and colorful, carved turquoise bead and enamel pendant necklace, that was made in China and is in good condition.
