THIS IS THE DRAGON, I HAVE FOUR OF THESE AND ONE HEAD, AS THE TAIL WAS GONE WHEN I GOT IT, LIKE I SAID, SOOOO FRAGILE, THAT'S WHY I FRAMED THEM ASAP. I AM SORRY BUT THEY ARE HARD TO PHTOTOGRAPH NOW THAT I HAVE FRAMED THEM!! ON THE BACK ON THE DRAGONS, THERE IS NO PRINTING, JUST TISSUE PAPER. ON THE BACK OF THE LARGER ONES IT SAYS, "TONG TAI, FUH KING STREET, FATSHAN, CANTON, CHINA", SOME SMALLER JUST SAY, MADE IN CHINA, AND LIKE THE DRAGONS, NOTHING.
BECAUSE GOLD IS A METAL, MODERN TECHNOLOGY CAN MAKE GOLD LEAF ONE ATOM THICK, WHICH IS WHY YOU CAN BUY 100 SHEETS OF GOLD LEAF SO CHEAPLY, BECAUSE IT IS ONE ATOM THICK.AND FRAGILE. THESE DONE IN OLD CHINA I ASSUMED WERE SQUEEZED THROUGH SOME KIND OF PRESS, OR PERHAPS HAMMERED DOWN TO THE "PAPAER THIN STATUS". I AM NOT SURE, BUT MANY PEOPLE SAID I SHOULD JUST TAKE THEM TO A GOLD DEALER BECAUSE, ALLATION.TOGETHER , THEY WEIGH SO MUCH, BUT I COULD NEVER DESTROY ART FOR THE GOLD VALUE, BY JIMINY, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A "SIN" TO ME!! PLEASE, I AM POSTING MORE PICTURES, PLEASE HELP ME WITH IDENTIFICATION, YOUR CW FAN, MICHELLE
