    So I was told that this is Chinese, a small pendant incised and colored with a bird in a natural setting. There are some words on the pendant, don't know what they say. This has wavy lines and no blood or veins that I can see, so possibly ivory? Any information on meaning, era, what the words say, appreciated. Thanks for looking.

      Thanks for the love, brunswick, mikelv85, bijoucaillouvintage, TassieDevil, JImam, and Master. :)

      Thomas, not sure if the piece was made by hand, or manufactured. Never thought of that. Was ivory jewelry produced by machine? I suppose that's possible. If they made billiard balls and piano keys by machine, why not jewelry? I suppose I assumed this was hand made because of the chop, but that's not a good assumption since many produced pieces include an artist's signature.

      Thanks for the love, kyratango, and Efesgirl. :)

      Thank you, Pascale, for confirming that this is ivory, my first piece unintentionally gotten at a swap meet booth for a dollar, and thank you for the information that it is hand carved. It's too bad we don't speak or read Chinese! :)
