    Seller was selling it as a wine libation cup pendant ! ! !
    Measures 1 9/16" tall x 1 3/8" wide.
    Deeply sculpted red lacquer on wood (?)
    Ivory ring (crosshatch marks)
    There is a signature under the ivory ring.
    Can anybody decipher it?
    (Will offer a full cup of wine to who will lol)

      This looks like a Chinese bird feeder, I've never seen one in cinnabar before... http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/lot/ten-chinese-porcelain-bird-feeders-yuan-qing-dynasty-5419153-details.aspx

      Thanks for your comment and link, Asia1!
      I knew what it was when I bought it...
      Never seen one in cinnabar too!
      I wondered if the chinese script is a signature or auspicious symbol.
    9. Asia1 Asia1, 7 years ago
      No idea, it could be Japanese too...
    10. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Yep, no idea too :-)
