Absolutely stunning showcase of Chinese Export jewelry. This highly collectable style typically favors the spun silver with gold wash like this piece here. There are accented blue enamel paint work as well as sterling silver and 14kt gold painted accents. The center of the brooch features a unique gryphon type dragon with fork like tongue and wings. There is a unique geometric pattern and capped on the ends with 14kt gold painted spiderwebs. Very unique piece of work. Great vintage condition with small normal signs of wear. Clasp shows a vintage trombone style with locking pin.
Acid tests positive for sterling silver.
Brooch measures 2 and 1/4 of an inch wide and 1 and 7/8ths of an inch tall
