Incredible... Perfect example of mis categorized EBay auction!!!

Sold for vintage Asian warrior pendant, plus blurry pics! A bargain :-))

He is enameled silver, foiled stones or pastes, a real pearl dangle.

The dragon's wing moves!

Back is very beautifuly enamelled too.

I have to identify age with the marks, but think it is around 1880.

HUGE :
total length: 3.1/4"
width: 2"
Weight: 37 grams

Thanks for looking, loving and commenting :-D

    A wonderful piece! Congratulations!
  11. BelleEpoque BelleEpoque, 2 years ago
    Hey Kyra, glad I could help :)
    Böhm did wonderful enamel work, and his pieces were very much revivalist. So it's possible that yours is trying to immitate an older style, like the one on the link. I have a very modest (but pretty) pendant by him, and the bale is quite similar to yours... that's why I suspected it might be by him.

    Wowza. So much going on, Beautiful workmanship. I looked at the back first, thinking it was the front - d'uh - it left me confused because I couldn't find the dragon. Double d'uh.
  24. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
    Totally agree with you Gilian!
    I'm still amazed to get it and by all the workmanship it shows.
    Thank you for your input!
