    I am not sure how old this hand crafted articulated silver gilt koi fish is- but I think it may be a Chinese export?
    Marked silver on the inside of its mouth has turquoise eyes and
    6.5 cm long.

      Very nice pendant!
      You're right, Betty, Chinese export filigree. They can be used as pomander, with a perfume impregnated tissue inside :-)

      I did a Bing search for Chinese export filigree and a fish like this was listed on Ruby Lane as a pillbox and priced at $125.00. So grateful you posted this as I have a piece of jewelry I've been trying to identify and was having a hard time. I hadn't seen Chinese silver filigree before.

      Cheers, Knockwood

      Thank-you kyra for your great knowledge and the link you provided:)
      You are a credit to cw!
      I picked the cute little fish up for five dollars at a garage sale as I thought he was so interesting and in good form along with an elephant pendant which I cannot figure if he is carved from bone or something else. Another one for you kyra!(please:)

      Hi, Bettyboo,
      I agree that CW is great. People share such good stuff. It's like taking a class but more fun.
